Project Description: My main current project, funded by the Academy of Finland,investigates the heuristic and epistemic value of strategies of unification and reduction in the social sciences. During my stay at the CPNSS, I will be working on two lines of research: the value of neuroeconomic evidence for triangulation and the use of models for explanation in economics.
