With my studies I try to understand which processes drive the decisions that shape our social environment. I believe that improving society with fresh and effective changes often requires some courage to also look outside the scope of one’s own field. Technical theories and algorithms might make predictions that at implementational level might explain a societal issue: a solution might remain unnoticed, until someone sees the association.
During some current projects I try to understand how attention-shifts underlie the valuation of others, how financial stress affects cautious decision-making and how prejudices disable learning about someone’s ability. All these studies make use of formal computations to decompose the very fundaments of our sociality. With the final goal to inspire interventions from the origin of the problem.
