Current Research and Interests
I am a cognitive neuroscientist who works in the field of decision making and neuroeconomics. I did my PhD at University College of London. Here I began to study human decision making, integrating economics models with the tools of cognitive neuroscience with the aim of developing a more realistic account of economic behaviour. In 2008 I was awarded a Wellcome postdoctoral fellowship with Daniel Kahneman as mentor. I worked two years in the Department of Economics at Caltech with Colin Camerer. I am now a Sir Henry Dale Fellow (Royal Society & Wellcome Trust) at the University College London, Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience where I am the Principal Investigator of the Decision Making Group.
