My research focuses on prosocial decision making. I am interested in questions like why are people altruistic? Which situations make people more prosocial? How do these decisions change across the lifespan?
To answer these questions I use tools from psychology and neuroscience including fMRI, physiological measures, behavioural experiments, neuropsychological studies and computational modelling.
I am currently a postdoc with Dr Patricial Lockwood in the Social Decision Neuroscience Lab.
My PhD research was the social neuroscience of prosocial behaviour, with a focus on charitable giving. I completed my PhD at the University of Sussex with Dr Daniel Campbell-Meiklejohn, in the Social Decision Lab.
