Sonia is a cognitive science researcher at Georgia State University’s NeuroLearn Laboratory. Her research focuses on people’s ability to learn statistical contingencies as well as their capacity for prediction and attention while learning. She regularly acquires physiological and behavioral data in an attempt to study how people acquire knowledge of these statistical sequences. Sonia is familiar with using a mixture of common statistical techniques as well applying more complex linear mixed models to event related potential data. Her writing and programming skills are always a work in progress and are versatile enough to suit different project requirements. She is currently working towards a Ph.D. dissertation that focuses on learning and language, across auditory and visual modalities (expected graduation: 2019). Her experiences with working in a multicultural environment has nurtured an appreciation for diversity and global issues.
