Benedetto De Martino

Senior Research Fellow in Neuroeconomics, Royal Holloway

I am a cognitive neuroscientist who works in the field of decision making and neuroeconomics. I did my PhD (funded by the Wellcome Trust) at University College of London (UCL). Here I began to study human decision making, integrating economics models with the tools of cognitive neuroscience with the aim of developing a more realistic account of economic behaviour. In 2008 I was awarded a Wellcome postdoctoral fellowship with Daniel Kahneman as mentor. I worked two years in the Department of Economics at Caltech with Colin Camerer.

I am now at Royal Holloway University of London Department of Psychology as Senior Research Fellow in Neuroeconomics, I hold a position as Visiting Associate in Economics and Neuroscience at CalTech and I am affiliated to the CRESA at Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele Milano.
