I am a cognitive neuroscientist who works in the field of decision making and neuroeconomics. My first degree was in Pharmacology from the University of Naples (2003). I did my PhD (which was funded by the Wellcome Trust) at University College of London (UCL). 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 back at UCL Department of Psychology as Research Fellow and I hold a position as Visiting Associate in Economics and Neuroscience at Caltech.
