As a neuro-economist, my primary objective is to illuminate the neural underpinnings of cognitive biases and deviations from optimal economic behavior. By doing so, my aim is to enhance existing economic models and provide valuable insights for policymakers.
In my work, I integrate experimental and behavioral economics with various neuroscience methods such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). Through these approaches, I investigate the neural mechanisms that underlie social preferences, risk preferences, strategic uncertainty, and self-control.
My research projects aim to bridge the gap between psychology and economics by addressing critical questions related to inequality, bounded rationality under risk and uncertainty, strategic perspective-taking, and inter-temporal choice. By combining insights from both disciplines, I strive to shed light on these important areas and contribute to a deeper understanding of human behavior and decision-making processes.
