Lisa-Maria completed an MSc Cognitive and Decision Science and a BSc in Arts and Sciences at UCL. She explored decision-making processes at complementary cognitive, behavioural, and political scales with an interdisciplinary combination of data analysis, experimental methods, and computer programming.

Her research interests include social and political decision-making, social conflicts and cooperation, and immunizing citizens against misinformation. Before joining the Winton Centre, she was a research assistant at the London School of Economics Behavioural Research Lab, where she worked on interventions to recalibrate risk perception and reduce biases. As a behavioural consultant at Innovia Tech, she worked to develop interventions improving safety, patients’ risk perception and adherence behaviour to medication. At the Winton Centre, her current research focuses on the communication of evidence and uncertainty in a variety of domains from policy interventions to healthcare and the legal sector.
