Research Interests

I study judgment and decision-making processes, focusing on topics such as heuristics and biases, social preferences (altruism, fairness, trust, reciprocity etc.), cooperation and competition between individuals and groups, and unethical behavior. Additionally, I have a specific interest in the interplay between dual processes such as intuition and reasoning, emotions and emotion-regulation, and automaticity and cognitive-control. Combining methods from behavioral economics, social and cognitive psychology, and (more recently) neuroscience, in extensive portion of my work, I try to capture the effects of such dual processes, and their interplay, on the way we form our judgments and decisions.
