Drew Hendrickson is a post-doc working with A/Prof. Amy Perfors (and previously A/Prof. Dan Navarro before he moved to UNSW) in the Computational Cognitive Science lab (https://health.adelaide.edu.au/psychology/ccs/) in the School of Psychology at the University of Adelaide. Drew completed his PhD at Indiana University (Departments of Psychological and Brain Sciences, Cognitive Science) and his BS at Carnegie Melon University (Computer Science, Cognitive Psychology).
My research interests are in understanding what mental representations people learn and how they apply and update them when encountering new items and tasks. In order to better understand these unobservable aspects of cognition, I use computational models to precisely specify mental representations, processes, and learning mechanisms at multiple levels of cognition including perceptual processing, concepts and categories, attention, and language. My most recent work has focused on understanding and predicting individual differences in how existing representations are updated as people are presented with new information.
