My name is Katja Mehlhorn and I am a teacher at the Department of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

In the first semester of the academic year 2017/2018 I am teaching the following courses: Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Basic Scientific Skills. (Note, to access the links you need to be enrolled in the course on Nestor). Those two courses will be given in the learning-community setting. If you have any questions about the courses or learning communities, please send me an email.

Until spring 2014, I was a postdoctoral researcher with Coty Gonzalez in the dynamic decision making lab at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. My main research interest in this project was in understanding how memory processes affect the way we think and make decisions.

Before that, I was a PhD student with Niels Taatgen at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, and Josef Krems at the Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany. In my PhD I used behavioral experiments and cognitive models to investigate how people use information from memory to generate hypotheses and make decisions.

In April 2015, I co-chaired the International Conference on Cognitive Modeling, in Groningen, the Netherlands.
