Konstantina Sokratous

About Me

Doctoral candidate in the Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience area at the University of Florida, working with Dr. Peter Kvam. I received multiple awards to develop machine learning approaches to model fitting and joint modeling of various types of data. Throughout my graduate career, I have been working on projects related to modeling anticipatory decision-making and timing, pricing of delayed prospects, decisions among alternatives that change over time and various other higher cognitive functions that drive behavior such as procrastination.
