Damon Tomlin is an instructor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. He also continues to collaborate with Jonathan Cohen, director of the Neuroscience of Cognitive Control Laboratory at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. Before his tenure as a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton, he completed his Doctorate in neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine under his advisor, Read Montague.
Dr. Tomlin's research interests lie in the field of social decision-making and the development of a quantitative understanding of social behavior. In the service of this goal, he uses a combination of behavioral analysis, neuroimaging, eye tracking, and agent-based simulations to understand choices made in a social context, and how the behavior of other group members can impact those choices.
