Jana Schaich Borg

I use behavioral economics and high-dimensional neural recordings in both human and animal participants to understand how and why we make social decisions, especially decisions that have consequences for others. Current projects also aim to incorporate social media data and performance on experimentally designed online social games to better classify and diagnose social deficits that influence disruptive behaviors. I use the insights gleaned from this research to develop interventions to decrease violence and improve social functioning in both psychiatric and community populations.
Outside of my research, I am interested in designing systems that create incentive structures to effectively bring together science, business, and public policy to implement innovative technology- and science-based solutions for societal problems. Towards that end, I participate in initiatives aiming to revise academic research models to better support cutting-edge collaboration, and am an advocate for interdisciplinary training programs that teach scientists how to apply their research to world issues, and education programs that teach entrepreneurs and philanthropists how to support structures that foster disruptive innovation in biomedical science.
Jana obtained her PhD in Neurobiology from Stanford University.
