Agnieszka Tymula

Neuro-economist, University of Sydney

Agnieszka Tymula is a decision-scientist who uses experimental and traditional theoretical economic tools in her research.

While studying behavioural/experimental economics and choice theory as a graduate student at Bocconi University and a visiting scholar at Northwestern University, Agnieszka became convinced that understanding the biological constraints of human decision-making will be an effective way to constrain economic theory and experiments.

In order to further explore this, Agnieszka joined the Society for Neuroeconomics and became a post-doctoral researcher in Prof Paul Glimcher’s lab at the Center for Neuroeconomics at New York University. She joined the University of Sydney in July 2013.
