My research is mostly focused into human behavior and neuroimaging. Under this broad research topic, I dedicated myself to the study of social/affiliative behavior, motivation and human values. I am also interested in the default mode network and its implications to human behavior.
My current PhD project aims to comprehend the representation of different values and motivations in the brain using fMRI encoding models and behavioral measures, including psychometric scales and digital records of human behavior.
