Bio

I am working as a postdoc at the University of Amsterdam in CREED collaborating with Joël van der Weele. I completed my Ph.D. in neurobiology (with a certificate in cognitive neuroscience) at Duke University working in the lab of Dr. Scott Huettel and collaborating with Dr. Rachel Kranton.

I study decision-making at the intersection of psychology, neuroscience, and economics. My research has two main areas of focus. 1) I use eye tracking and computational modeling to understand how attention plays a role in choice processes and pinpoint targets for intervention. 2) I explore the neural and behavioral mechanisms of social influences on choice, including conformity in consumer choice and reputation in prosocial motivation.

I am interested in applying a mechanistic understanding of decision-making to inform evidence-based policies that address societal issues such as inequality and environmental impacts.
