Personal profile

Research Interests

Simone's research aims to investigate and understand decision-making processes under risk and uncertainty. In particular, it examines to what extent risk communication affects people's personal beliefs, risk attitudes, time preferences, and, ultimately, their choice behaviour. This work becomes very helpful in identifying effective strategies to communicate risk information that induces people to make the right decision and, thus, behave in their own best interests. These issues are mainly investigated in the domain of health and environmental risks related to food consumption by using laboratory and field experiments. Simone is also interested in testing the incentive compatibility of methods that are widely used to elicit subjective probabilities, risk attitudes, and time preferences as well as in examining whether well-established and innovative approaches implemented to elicit preferences for non-marketed goods are demand revealing or not (e.g., discrete choice experiment, auctions, Becker–DeGroot–Marschak method).
