Research Interests:

From the field of Neuroeconomics, I'm mainly interested in human decision making, especially in how one deals with intertemporal choice, being it about monetary reward or food reward. I collect both behavioural measures as well as hormonal and neural (fMRI) measures, on both healthy and pathological populations (e.g., obese and brain-lesioned patients).
