Previous, my research lied at the intersection between medical decision-making and neuroethics. I studied how intuitions—particularly surrounding risks and benefits—affect preferences towards neurotechnologies. To these ends adapted models from behavioral economics to better understand judgments about neuroethical questions such as what drives people’s choices to modify the human brain.
Currently I am combining computational modeling and process-tracing at the levels of neuronal activity (EEG) and behavior to understand the cognitive processes involved in preferential decision making. I am also interested in the mechanism behind how people choose when offered a fixed set of choice alternatives and asked to choose a subset of any size from the available consideration set.
