Jessica Thompson, Ph.D.
Dr. Jessica Thompson completed her Ph.D. at the International Laboratory for Brain, Music & Sound Research (BRAMS) and the Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute (Mila) at University of Montreal where her research focused on characterizing and comparing representational hierarchies in artificial neural networks and the human auditory system. She is currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Experimental Psychology at University of Oxford where she studies the neuro-computational principles of human learning, generalization, and cooperation. Her research involves formalizing theories of human cognition in artificial neural network models and then testing the resultant predictions in human experiments.
