Damon Tomlin is a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Sacred Heart University. He has previously held positions in the Department of Psychology at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute, where he collaborated with Jonathan Cohen, director of the Neuroscience of Cognitive Control Laboratory. Before his tenure as a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton, he completed his Doctorate in neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine under his advisor, Read Montague.
Dr. Tomlin's research interests lie in the field of social decision-making and the development of a quantitative understanding of social behavior. In the service of this goal, he uses a combination of behavioral analysis, neuroimaging, eye tracking, and agent-based simulations to understand choices made in a social context, and how the behavior of other group members can impact those choices.
