Chen Graduate Fellow Alumni
Anastasia received her PhD in Social and Decision Neuroscience from Caltech in 2021. She was part of the Camerer Group where her research explored the way that behaviors are shaped by habits, rather than by active consideration of pros and cons. She is a now behavioral scientist with Alpha Edison applying academic insights to real-world challenges facing growing companies - from product development to marketing strategy. Previous to starting her PhD, Anastasia was Vice President of Behavioral Finance at BlackRock Asset Management, where she worked with professional investors and investment teams on improving their investment processes by applying learnings from behavioral finance. She holds a MSc from Imperial College London and a BA from Hunter College in New York.
