Sonia Savelli, Ph.D.
Research Associate, Applied Physics Laboratory
Sonia Savelli received her PhD in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Washington. Sonia’s dissertation work investigated people’s tendencies to use heuristic strategies to judge probabilities. This work is part of a tradition that seeks to explain systematic errors people make when reasoning with uncertainty. For the past two years she has worked as part of a multidisciplinary team comprised of psychologists, statisticians, and atmospheric scientists exploring the cognitive issues related to reasoning and decision-making under uncertainty in the context of weather forecasts. Currently she is examining the role of ambiguity in online collaborative decision-making.
