Olivia Guest

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

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 current 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 associate editor 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.
