Karin Bacily is a research assistant at CREED under the supervision of Jan Engelmann and Maël Lebreton since July 2017. The project she is working on is an extension of the research she did for her bachelor’s thesis, also under Jan’ supervision. She is taking courses in areas of neuroscience and marketing for extracurricular credits towards her B.Sc in Psychobiology at the University of Amsterdam. Her interest lies with human decision making, both economic and consumer-based, and the underlying neural processes. She is currently working with Jan and Maël to investigate the role of confidence in economic decision-making.
