I'm generally interested in human and animal Associative Learning and value based Decision-Making (Neuroeconomics). Under the supervision of Dr. Amy Milton and Prof. Anthony Dickinson, my Ph.D. work focused in developing a computational dual-system model of instrumental responding.
I currently work studying the relationship between neuronal activity and hemodynamic responses in the representation of value, decision and reward signals in the prefrontal cortex.
