Dianna Amasino, Ph.D.
Scott Huettel, Ph.D.
Dr. Massino studies decision-making at the intersection of psychology, neuroscience, and economics. Her research has two main areas of focus. 1) using eye tracking and computational modeling to understand how attention plays a role in choice processes and pinpoint targets for intervention. 2) exploring the neural and behavioral mechanisms of social influences on choice, including conformity in consumer choice and reputation in prosocial motivation.
She is interested in applying a mechanistic understanding of decision-making to inform evidence-based interventions and policies that address societal issues such as poverty and inequality.
