Dr Andrea Pisauro
Andrea is a Postdoctoral Researcher. He completed a PhD at UCL in the laboratory of Matteo Carandini. He then moved to Glasgow to work on simultaneous EEG-fMRI in the laboratory of Marios Philiastides. He is interested in the neural basis and the computational principles underlying human decision making. His current work involves understanding the role of social context in shaping behavior and how it is encoded by the brain to inform valuation and decision making.

ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow
Anthony is a Postdoctoral Fellow funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. He completed a PhD and post-doc at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King's College London, where he used neuropharmacological techniques to investigate how the brain processes information related to social interactions, such as trust and cooperation.
Cody is a PhD student in Experimental Psychology at Oxford, where he is supervised by Matthew Apps and Geoff Bird. Before coming to Oxford, Cody studied cognitive science at UCLA and Harvard. Most of the questions he is interested in revolve around how people think about other people, especially when those other people are different from oneself.
Katie O'Nell is an MRes student in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, supervised by Dr. Matt Apps and Prof. Nick Yeung. She received a B.S. in Brain and Cognitive Sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she studied facial identity and emotion recognition. Her current research focuses on how effort expended in understanding a social landscape affects social decision-making.
Alice is a visiting MSc Erasmus student studying Experimental and Theoretical Psychology at the University of Ghent. She is interested in social decision making concerning fairness. Also, at the University of Ghent, she studies the influence of free will beliefs on intentionality bias and prosocial behaviour.
