Dr. Rachael Bond

Rachael Bond is a Research Fellow in Quantum Cognition at the University of Sussex, England, investigating how quantum mechanics may be used to model the cognitive processes which underpin human decision-making and insight problem solving.

Current research projects are centred on the modelling of abductive logic, non-monotonicity, and whether “lightbulb” moments of inspiration may be explained through quantum complexity theory.  This has led to some rather difficult questions about the implicate order of time.

Rachael graduated from the Open University with a First Class honours degree in Psychology, and completed her Ph.D., under the supervision of Professor Tom Ormerod, at the University of Sussex. Her doctoral thesis, “Relational Information Theory”, developed an innovative model of decision making under uncertainty which gives greater insight into psychonomic behaviour than that provided by previous theories.

Prior to becoming a Psychologist, Rachael had a career in technology – interspersed with periods spent variously as a Club DJ, Pub manager, and member of an ABBA tribute band.

I have an impending sense of dread... Biden is incoherent, rambling, and appears very uncertain of himself. Very disappointed by him 😞

Thanks for the targeted advertising @NatureHumBehav, but doesn't this sort of social media campaign make you look like a predatory journal? #AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter @OpenAcademics

speculative hot take: what if actually everyone starts out being an animist and non-aspies are just the people who successfully learn non-animism as a social behavior https://twitter.com/alt_kia/status/1310078329203064832

Having adopted this attire for all Zoom meetings (given the way that 2020 is going I'm not taking any more chances), I'm alarmed by this paper (thank you @statsguyuk!) that says aluminium hats *increase* the effect of government radio frequencies 😱 https://web.archive.org/web/20100708230258/http://people.csail.mit.edu/rahimi/helmet/

It’s Post-Doc Week! I hope you're having a lovely week & feeling very appreciated for the great work you do!⭐️🥳

A wee thread about things I love and don't-quite-love about Post-Doc life. I've been a Post-Doc for ~3 years now...
