Hello and Welcome!
My name is Giulia Mezzadri. I'm a mathematician and a postdoctoral researcher in the Cognition and Decision Lab at Columbia University (New York, United States), working with Michael Woodford. I'm currently investigating the cognitive mechanisms underlying economic decision-making and behavior.
Previously, I was a PhD student in the J.A. Dieudonné laboratory at Université Côte d'Azur (Nice, France), under the supervision of Patricia Reynaud-Bouret, Fabien Mathy, and Thomas Laloë. During my PhD, I used computational modeling and experimentation to study human category learning and representation.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, hiking, and learning languages. I'm also a proud member of the LGBTQI+ community.
Please, feel free to contact me. I'm always happy to talk about creative and ambitious ideas!
July 25, 2022: Updated preprint for "How to fit transfer models to learning data: a segmentation/clustering approach" (with co-authors Thomas Laloë, Fabien Mathy, and Patricia Reynaud-Bouret).
June 24 - July 3, 2022: I attended the 2022 Sloan-NOMIS Summer School on Cognitive Foundations of Economic Behavior.
May 26, 2022: Updated preprint for "Investigating interactions between types of order in categorization" (with co-authors Patricia Reynaud-Bouret, Thomas Laloë, and Fabien Mathy).
May 23, 2022: Our paper "Hold-out strategy for selecting learning models: application to categorization subjected to presentation orders" (with co-authors Thomas Laloë, Fabien Mathy, and Patricia Reynaud-Bouret) has been accepted for publication in Journal of Mathematical Psychology.
December 7, 2021: Our paper "An order-dependent transfer model in categorization" (with co-authors Patricia Reynaud-Bouret, Thomas Laloë, and Fabien Mathy) has been accepted for publication in Journal of Mathematical Psychology.
September 1, 2021: I started my new adventure as a postdoc at Columbia University! I will join the Cognition and Decision Lab, where I will study human behavior in economic settings under the supervision of Michael Woodford.
