My research aims to develop interdisciplinary studies in the cognitive and social fields. I am interested in explaining the emergence, evolution and innovation of macro social phenomena in social systems, such as social norms and enforcement mechanisms (e.g. punishment and sanction), by integrating the research findings in cognitive science into a set of operational models. I use Agent Based Social Simulations to test these models.
In 2007, I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Rome «La Sapienza», with a dissertation titled ‘Linguistic Universals and Grammar Categories: the Parts of Speech Theory’.
From 2007 to 2010 I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Laboratory of Agent Based Social Simulation at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council (ISTC-CNR).
I have published several scientific articles on norms representation and reasoning, and agent-based simulation. The following book has been accepted by the Oxford University Press, Andrighetto, G., Campennì, M., Conte, R., (eds.) Minding Norms, Oxford Series on Cognitive Models and Architectures.
