Yuxuan (Effie) Li



I am a 5th year PhD student in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University, advised by Jay McClelland. I am interested in structured decision making and planning as emergent from learning, in both humans and deep learning models.

In summer 2023, I was a PhD research intern on the PRIOR team at the Allen Institute for AI, working with Luca Weihs. Prior to Stanford, I double-majored in Computer Science and Psychology at Trinity College (Connecticut), and worked on building neural decoders of human episodic memory at the Penn Computational Memory Lab.
