Gabriel Recchia

Research Associate, Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication, University of Cambridge

I'm Gabriel Recchia, a research associate at the University of Cambridge’s Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication, where I work on how to communicate information about risks and benefits in ways that support comprehension and informed decision-making. This includes research on distributional models of semantics and their applications in characterizing how risk is communicated and perceived. I’m also particularly interested in how best to communicate information generated by statistical models and machine learning algorithms, and am a member of Congenica's Artificial Intelligence Advisory Group.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University in 2007, and my doctorate is in Cognitive Science at Indiana University, with a minor in computational linguistics.
