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.

@DrRachaelBond @waitrose It's very sporadic and depends on the branch. @waitrose @Tesco @sainsburys @LidlGB @AldiUK @Morrisons @asda @marksandspencer @IcelandFoods How about making it easier for unpaid #carers to shop at your branches so they can shop for the person they care for and themselves.

.@Care4theCarers Apparently in other areas of the country some supermarkets (eg @waitrose ) give priority access to carers if they show their "Carer's Card". Any idea if any of the East Sussex (Eastbourne) supermarkets do the same?

@MerriamWebster Things have gone downhill since the 10th century - we don't see anyone these days greeting each other with "Ƿes hāl", it's all this new-fangled "Hello" gefleard.
Bloody Norman immigrants with their fancy-pants French.

.@lynneguist that was an interesting talk! despite having spent a couple of years in NYC, it's never occurred to me just why Americans come across as being so damned rude :)
