About me & my work:

I study how individuals apprehend financial risks, by investigating both actual behavior and its neural bases. I use the knowledge and methodological tools of several fields – chiefly experimental economics, financial economics, and computational neuroscience – to better understand why market participants behave the way they do. I do research and teaching in this area.

I have been doing research in neuroeconomics since 2005. Started at Princeton as a student, then pursued it at the London School of Economics, Swiss Finance Institute at the EPFL in Lausanne, and Caltech, as a PhD student and postdoc. Since 2010 I have been teaching the Behavioral Finance course at UNSW Australia Business School in Sydney.
