Brief Bio I am Marco Marini, Italian, 27. I was born in Rome on July, 25th, 1991. I took my master degree in cognitive science at the Roma Tre university in 2017. I started my research path in January 2016, in Paris, when I joined the experimental philosophy group at the ENS. I then got interested about the theories of neuroeconomics, and I decided to carry on such passion particularly during my master thesis, with an internship at the ISTC of the CNR in Rome, in which I investigated some types and processes of decision making. Then I got a fellowship at the ISTC institute of the CNR during which I worked on decision making in an intertemporal and uncertain enviroment. Today I am a PhD student at the University of Rome La Sapienza, and I presented the results of my first research in some international conferences. I would like to continue this path investigating the neuro-cognitive processes, the response strategies and the systematic biases underlying human decision-making mechanisms.
