Structural abstraction and behavioral flexibility.


Seongmin is a researcher at the Institute of Cognitive Science Marc Jeannerod, CNRS (UMR5229), where he focuses on human learning and decision-making. He received his Ph.D. from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and completed his postdoctoral training at CNRS with Dr. Jean-Claude Dreher and at UC Davis with Dr. Erie Boorman.

Seongmin's research interests center on the neural computational mechanisms that underlie flexible decision-making and generalization. His work explores how the brain abstracts complex experiences into low-dimensional structural representations to enable generalization and flexible decision-making. These abilities are essential components of human intelligence but remain a challenge for many artificial intelligence systems and are often impaired in people with psychological disorders.

Seongmin's research has been published in peer-reviewed journals, including Nature Neuroscience and Neuron, and he was awarded the 2022 Chaire of Excellence Award from Lyon1 University.

Seongmin's goal is to establish a research program that develops neuro-computational models of flexible decision-making and generalization. His work aims to advance our understanding of the neural basis of human intelligence and improve artificial intelligence systems' ability to learn and generalize. Through interdisciplinary collaboration with other researchers, Seongmin aims to continue making significant contributions to the field of cognitive neuroscience.
