Jen Whitman received her PhD in Neuroscience from the University of British Columbia in 2013. Part of her work has involved cognitive psychology studies of how people judge hypotheses (https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-people-are-fooled-by-evidence/). Another aspect of her work has involved developing new techniques for analyzing functionally connected brain networks (https://www.nitrc.org/projects/fmricpca). This partly involves analyzing functional MRI scans, and partly analyzing the oscillations or 'brainwaves' measurable via EEG and a related technology called MEG. She is interested in the dynamic brain systems underlying working memory and also in environmental psychology.
