Mark Orloff is a graduate student in Virginia Tech's Translational Biology, Medicine, and Health program and conducts research in the laboratory of Dr. Pearl Chiu. Mark joined the lab in 2016 after completing his B.S. in psychology at Virginia Tech. Mark is interested in the role of social influence in risky decision-making. His current project involves combining computational modeling techniques with real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging neurofeedback. Through these methods he hopes to facilitates behavior change in risky decisions or susceptibility to social influence via real-time neuromodulation of individuals’ brain states. Mark seeks to develop novel computational modeling and neuroimaging methods to inform interventions by improving decision-making deficits underlying disease.
