Description:

Formerly majoring in Philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires, I transferred to Hunter College to study Neuroscience.  My interest in decision-making stems from the need to rethink the basis of volition and rational agency.  I hope to explore the intersection of brain and behavior, focusing on the study of decision-making and motivation.  This summer, I will be at Brown University conducting research on the functions of the prefrontal cortex at the Badre Lab.  In the fall, I plan on doing research on the relationship between emotion and decision-making.
