Neuroeconomics is a field that represents the confluence of economics, psychology and neuroscience in the study of human decision-making. Within this context, Karmarkar’s research broadly looks at how people use information in the world around them to estimate value and make everyday choices.
In this role, Karmarkar will spend three years as part of the executive leadership team: one year as president-elect, one year as president and a final year as past president, in which she will offer both support and consulting for the incoming leadership.
“The Society for Neuroeconomics reflects an incredible interdisciplinary scientific community, and I’m deeply honored to have been chosen to help lead it,” Karmarkar said.
The mission of The Society for Neuroeconomics is to foster research on the foundations of economic behavior by promoting collaboration and discussion among scholars from the psychological, economic and neural sciences, as well as to ensure the continued advancement of the field by supporting young researchers.
