Olivia Guest is a computational modeler in cognitive science and neuroscience. She has experience creating, replicating, and evaluating computational accounts for categorisation, conceptual representation, and semantic memory. She has modelled data from healthy adults, patient groups, infants, and animals. More broadly, she maintains active interests in applying computational modelling to other research areas such as politics and sociology — both theoretically and in an applied way.
She is a research scientist at the Research Centre on Interactive Media, Smart Systems and Emerging Technologies (RISE), Cyprus, and an affiliated researcher at Prof. Bradley C. Love's lab in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University College London (UCL), UK.
She holds degrees in Computer Science (BSc, University of York), Cognitive and Decision Sciences (MSc, UCL) and Psychology (PhD, Birkbeck). She worked at the University of Oxford and UCL before joining RISE.
