I have always been fascinated with decision making. I started my bachelor in Economics and Business Economics at LUISS university in Rome. Unsatisfied with my experience, after a year at LUISS I decided to transfer to Utrecht University School of Economics. The multidisciplinary approach of the hatchling faculty sparked my love for behavioural economics, a passion which would eventually be channelled into neuroeconomics.

After obtaining bachelor’s degree at the School of Economics, I decided to enroll into the faculty’s Research Master. I then joined the Decision Neuroscience Lab with the goal of writing my Master’s thesis and finding a supervisor. This turned out to be Professor Sanfey, who let me “jump on the bandwagon.”

Journal Publications

Filippo has not yet published any peer-reviewed papers.

In the coming year I will be assisting research at the Decision Neuroscience Lab. In the beginning, I will mostly be assisting Jeroen with his research on uncovering the link between observed “trust game” behavior and its motivations, second order beliefs (guilt aversion) and inequity aversion.


When I’m not doing studying or doing research I enjoy making music and cooking. I play cello and I frequently busk with my guitar on the streets of Utrecht. And when I’m not making music I’m either: a) eating food; b) cooking food to be eaten later. See you around!
