Dr. Rahnev is an Associate Professor in the School of Psychology at Georgia Tech. After finishing his Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Harvard University, Dr. Rahnev obtained his Ph.D. at Columbia University with Hakwan Lau and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at UC Berkeley with Mark D’Esposito. 
 
Dr. Rahnev’s research seeks to uncover the computational and neural bases of perceptual decision making. He studies the top-down processes that modulate the normal visual experience, using a combination of neuroimaging, brain stimulation, psychophysics, and computational modeling. His early pioneering work on attention-related subjective biases has inspired new lines of investigation and stimulated debates among philosophers. In another influential line of studies, Dr. Rahnev used a combination of brain stimulation and neuroimaging to demonstrate the existence of a hierarchical structure in the prefrontal cortex such that progressively rostral regions control later stages of perceptual decision making. His more recent work has uncovered the sources of suboptimality in perceptual decision making and developed improved models of visual metacognition. Dr. Rahnev has received an impressive series of grants from NIH, NSF, and the Office of Naval Research and mentored many graduate students and postdocs. He has also spearheaded several large collaborative efforts, such as creating the Confidence Database and organizing a consensus paper where researchers in visual metacognition agreed on shared goals. Dr. Rahnev’s research exemplifies open and high-quality science that produces fundamental discoveries about how humans make perceptual decisions.
 
 
Dr. Rahnev will be presented with the award and deliver a talk at the VSS Awards Session on Monday, May 16, 2022, 12:30 - 1:45 pm EDT.
