Hola! My name is Adriana Felisa Chávez De la Peña (Adriana is fine ;) ) and I got my B.A in Psychology (with honors) working at Lab25.

As a psychologist, I'm interested in studying the general rules that control Behavior and the Cognitive processes behind them. My main fields of interest are Bayesian Cognitive Modeling (specially in terms of Perceptual processes), Psychophysics and Psychometrics.

Since 2015, I've been the one member of Lab25 who's interested in perceptual decission making. I've worked with Signal Detection Theory ever since I got in the Lab, developing a few tutorials on the subject, as well as graphical simulators (mainly on Python and RShiny) and some templates for data analysis in R.

Besides of conducting research, my passion for Experimental Psychology is reflected in a huge interest on teaching. I've worked as a T.A. for several courses given by Dr Bouzas, and I've given a few independent courses.

Since 2016, I've been the head student of one of the main projects at Lab25, where we've developed a bunch of materials for students enrolled in Dr' Bouzas' courses, so they can get a better understanding of the main mathematical and statistical models built within Experimental Psychology to explain a variety of behavioral phenomena. These materials are available for download, but can also be explored online as RShiny apps.

From May to December, 2018, I worked at the National Institute for Educational Evaluation doing a bunch of interesting stuff, (I learned a lot about Test development there!)
