    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 an 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.
