Dr. Lewis-Peacock received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering, M.S. in Computer Science, and Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Psychology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University before joining the faculty at The University of Texas at Austin in 2013. His work investigates how the human brain supports our ability to accomplish goals. Specifically, he focuses on the intersection of cognitive control and memory for goal-directed behavior. His lab uses a combination of neuroimaging and computational techniques, including multivariate pattern analysis of fMRI data and real-time functional neuroimaging, to characterize core features of human cognition.
