Research summary

Martina is an applied behavioural economist, with interests in health and environmental issues. Her projects are usually motivated by key social issues and she analyses them using insights from psychology, neuroscience and biology. She has run both field and lab experiments, with several “non-standard” populations (such as first graders, farmers and mothers with a low socioeconomic status) and during her Ph.D. she has collaborated with scholars from others disciplines, beyond social sciences.
