The long and winding road (to research)

 

The aim of this talk is twofold. First, I will tell you a bit about my research background and journey, focusing on what my cv does not say about me (aka the most interesting bits!). Then, I will present a recently published article (in collaboration with the  https://le.ac.uk/npb/research/judgment-and-decision-making in which we failed to replicate a very famous and widely cited study suggesting that "winning a competition predicts dishonest behaviour". 

Bio:

I hold a BA and MSc in Social Psychology from the University of Milano-Bicocca (IT) and a PhD in Cognitive and Brain Science awarded by the University of Trento (IT). I am a member of the UoL Judgment and Decision Making research group. As a RA in the JDM lab, I am involved in studies focusing on the use of confidence in competitive games and the relation between entitlement and cheating. My main research interests involve probabilistic inference, social hypothesis testing, and reasoning biases. Additionally I am passionate about science communication and research dissemination and interested in replicability, open science issues, and the interface between cognitive and social aspects in social psychology topics like intergroup relations and impression formation.
