René San Martín is a PhD candidate in the Psychology and Neuroscience Department at Duke University. He is interested in the neural substrate of individual differences in economic and social decision making, and particularly in how humans use information about past outcomes to optimize choice behavior. His research examines these processes using EEG recordings while people participate in economic experiments. René joined the Huettel Lab after earning a BA in Psychology from Universidad de Valparaíso and a MA in Cognitive Studies from Universidad de Chile. René is also a Fulbright grant recipient and a faculty member at Universidad Diego Portales, Chile, where he has established the first center for the study of neuroeconomics in Latin America.
