How can we use neuroscience to understand and predict consumer choices?

Ryan Webb’s research integrates neuroscience, psychology, and economics to provide insight into consumer behaviour. Recent research includes developing empirical models to predict behaviour using neural measurement techniques (fMRI and EEG), and examining models of choice behaviour derived from the principles for how the brain encodes sensory information.

He received a Ph.D. in Economics from Queen’s University and research fellowships at New York University and the California Institute of Technology.
