Harshil Vyas

PhD Student, University of Antwerp

Harshil Vyas is currently a PhD student at the University of Antwerp (Belgium), which he commenced after completing his MSc at Radboud University. His master's thesis, supervised by Alan and Bernd Figner, examined intertemporal decision-making, specifically the contrast between discounting social rewards in comparison to monetary rewards using behavioural measures. During his PhD, Harshil continues to collaborate with our lab by collecting neuroimaging measures related to his thesis. 

In general, Harshil's research interests lie in the neural processes that guide our everyday social interactions, and how they influence our decisions based on the varying levels of motivation and inherent reward involved in interacting with other people. 

Outside the lab, he is an amateur photographer and basketball player, and also an avid aviation geek.
