Maxim Milyavsky

I am a Ph.D student in the lab. My research is focusing on the influence of motivation on use of unconscious information. Specifically, I am trying to show that people can use unconscious (subliminal) information in their choices and that this use can be enhanced as their aspiration to succeed grows up. In the more broad sense, as a former chess master and a current tai-chi amateur, I am interested in psychological factors that can improve our intuitive decision-making.
