Olivia Guest

Hi, I am a research scientist at the Research Centre on Interactive Media, Smart Systems and Emerging Technologies (RISE), Cyprus. I am also affiliated with Prof. Bradley C. Love's lab in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University College London, UK.

My undergraduate degree was in Computer Science. After that, I moved on to an MSc in Cognitive and Decision Sciences. I then undertook a PhD in Psychology on computational models for semantic memory.

My research primarily involves the creation and evaluation of computational accounts — such as deep and shallow artificial neural networks — for categorisation and conceptual representation in healthy adults, patient groups, infants, and animal models. I also have interests in computational modelling and data science more broadly, e.g., redistrict.science.

I am an editor-in-chief at ReScience C and a topic editor at Journal of Open Source Software. I am committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in (open) science, e.g., promoting access to technical skills training. In addition, Christina Bergmann and I try to maintain a list of underrepresented cognitive computational scientists. I also blog about my research and opinions on computational cognitive science and related fields.
