I am a 4th year PhD student in the Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics
Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at University of Groningen,
the Netherlands supervised by
Jelmer Borst and Hedderik van Rijn.
In my PhD, I am applying machine learning algorithms to EEG/MEG data to detect processing stages in various cognitive tasks.
During my PhD I have worked on EEG-based Identification of Evidence Accumulation Stages in Decision-Making where two modelling approaches were combined: traditional evidence accumulation models applied to behavioral data and novel machine learning algorithm, hidden semi-Markov model multivariate pattern analysis (HsMM-MVPA), that was applied to EEG data.
In my second project aimed at detecting stages in lexical decision Currently I am applying HsMM-MVPA to MEG data I collected from memory task and to chess.
Prior to my PhD, I have worked at the Deparment of Cognitive Neuropsychology at Tilburg University with Marcel Bastiaansen, Jeroen Stekelenburg and Jean Vroomen.
We have investigated the role of alpha oscillations in multimodal synchrony perception resulting in a publication first-authored by M. Bastiaansen. Until that time, I have worked at at the Department of Psychology at National Research University HSE in Moscow, Russia working on eye tracking analysis of memorization techniques and at Russian-Armenian University in Yerevan, Armenia in research group of Asya Berberyan on psychological aspects of ethnic identity.
