About Me

Angela Radulescu, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai, and core faculty in the Mt. Sinai Center for Computational Psychiatry. Their research focuses on how people learn from interaction with the environment, and why learning can lead to changes in mental health. Work in Angela's lab draws from the computational framework of reinforcement learning to build cognitive models that can generate behavior in real-time, and test these models based on how well they match human behavior in naturalistic paradigms (e.g. virtual reality, sequential decision-making tasks). This approach is aimed at modeling mental health dynamics in enough detail to develop theoretically-motivated therapeutic interventions.

Prior to joining Mt. Sinai in 2022, Angela was a Faculty Fellow at the New York University Center for Data Science, and completed her Ph.D. at Princeton University under the mentorship of Dr. Yael Niv.
