Dr. Blazej BaczkowskiPostdoctoral Fellow
I’m a cognitive (experimental) psychologist with passion for methodology and statistics. My past research was concerned with how individuals learn to protect themselves from danger. To this end, I pursued the idea that individuals estimate the risk of harm using a ‘cognitive map’ of their environment built from multiple separate learning episodes acquired in safety on the one hand, and minimal aversive experience on the other.
At the Hector Research Institute for Education Sciences and Psychology I work as a postdoctoral researcher and continue studying fundamental aspects of memory but in a naturalistic setting with the aim to better elucidate on how we learn and remember.
