Dr Elizabeth Bowman is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Decision Neuroscience in the Brain, Minds and Markets Laboratory at the Faculty of Business and Economics. Her current research looks at how humans make decisions under risk and uncertainty. This includes experiments involving eye-tracking while completing complex optimisation problems and investigations of how humans make predictions under leptokurtic uncertainty.
With a background in magnetic resonance imaging, neuropsychology, eye movements and optics, and retinal physiology, she graduated with a PhD in visual neuroscience from the University of Melbourne in 2013. Dr Bowman has previously worked with with the Melbourne Brain Centre at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Bionic Vision Australia, and the University of Melbourne's Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences. She has also obtained a Bachelor of Science with Honours from the Australian National University in Canberra.
