Scientific focus :

I study human behaviors emerging from the interplay of cognitive and emotional systems. My research agenda includes two main projects. The first one concerns the role of emotions in decision making, and the second is aimed at investigating the relational complexity in social interaction. My objective is to apply robust methods and findings from behavioral decision theory to study the brain structures that contribute to forming judgments and decisions, both in an individual and a social context. I conduct my research using a fundamentally multidisciplinary approach (Neuroeconomics), drawing from behavioral and experimental economics, gametheory, neuroimagery (fMRI), neuropsychology (patients studies), and cognitive neurosciences.
