Hansjoerg Neth is a Cognitive Science researcher with a background in cognitive psychology and philosophy. In his research, Hans asks how interactive behavior, problem solving and decision-making are shaped by cost-benefit tradeoffs on a behavioral micro-level and examines how humans make adaptive choices between multiple methods, tasks and tools. His current projects include theoretical and empirical investigations on rational task analysis, visual search, and stable sub-optimal performance. Hans studied in Freiburg, Germany, and Princeton, USA, and obtained a PhD from Cardiff University, UK. Hans currently is Research Assistant Professor at the Cognitive Science Department of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (in Troy, NY, USA).
