Postdoctoral Research Associate, Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Neuroimaging, UCL

As a slight academic detour, Dr. Dan Bang spent his early days in Beijing studying Mandarin Chinese. Following that he read for a BA in Linguistics at Aarhus University before becoming involved with the Interacting Minds Centre at Aarhus University; working as a Research Assistant for Bahador Bahrami, Andreas Roepstorff and Chris Frith. Dan then read for a Masters degree in Cognitive & Evolutionary Anthropology under the supervision of Robin Dunbar at the University of Oxford. Upon completion of his Masters, he read for a DPhil degree under the supervision of Jennifer Lau and Chris Summerfield at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford. His DPhil research broadly concerned how people compute and integrate confidence during group decision-making. As a postdoc in the Metacognition Lab, Dan is working on dissociating the different types of uncertainty that affect our sense of confidence.
