Postdoctoral Research Associate

The role of motivation, effort and social context in decision-making

Research interests

Andrea is a Postdoctoral Researcher. He completed a PhD at UCL in the laboratory of Matteo Carandini. He then moved to the University of Glasgow to work on simultaneous EEG-fMRI in the laboratory of Marios Philiastides. He is interested in the neural basis and the computational principles underlying human decision-making and in his research he uses a combination of cognitive neuroscience methods such as functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) in conjunction with computational modeling and game theory.

His current work involves understanding how the social context is encoded in the brain to shape human behaviour and how the pressure to reach a goal changes our motivation and sense of fatigue.
