    I have seen Eliana present at the Society for Neuroeconomics meeting as well as other conferences (such as the European Society for Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience 2018). She is an engaging speaker who is well-versed in topics of cognitive control, motivation, effort and their neural prerequisites. On top, she also cares a lot about science communication, so I could see her be an interesting speaker for both science as well as lay audiences.
