Akanksha Jain, M.S.
Intern

She is engrossed in decision making, understanding the parameters that people use while making decisions and how their decisions could be mold and their mental models could be improved by giving them training. She has been working as an intern on climate change project which focuses on improving public understanding about Earth's climate through the influence of repeated feedback. It clearly pointed out the cognitive misconceptions general public is having about climate change and how it improved by the help of training by providing them with homogeneous and heterogeneous repeated feedback. She has high hopes to be a proficient cognitive neuroscientist.

Sushmita Negi, M.S.
Intern

The passion to understand human behaviours, thoughts and desires has led Sushmita taking Cognitive Neuroscience as majors in Master's degree. She has been working as an intern under Dr. Varun Dutt on Improving Public Understanding of Earth's climate through repeated feedback. In this research simulation tool is used as an intervention to help public understand the dynamics of climate change which has shown to be effective in learning from decision actions. The proposed research has important implications for developing effective climate education programs that make use of microworld. The resulting intervention would likely improve people's understanding about Earth's climate and help them to make better and informed environmental decisions. She further encourages seeking study computational models of decision making.
