this is me

Alejandro de la Vega, PhD

Research Scientist
Department of Psychology
University of Texas at Austin

I'm currently a Research Scientist with Tal Yarkoni in the Psychoinformatics Lab. I build open-source neuroinformatics tools to better understand how the mind gives rise to mental states.

I'm also interested in using online data collection (e.g. crowdsourcing) to help us do things we can't fully automate yet, and to conduct large-scale studies in psychology.
