  • Profile

    In my PhD I study social learning strategies in adolescents and adults. I look at what type of peers (close friends, popular, smart) are most influential within classrooms, what types of social cues (confidence, expertise, majority) people use when they look at others’ opinions, and weather following others is beneficial or not. The main outcomes of my projects are:

    • Students in classrooms learn more from those socially close to them in their social network, those who are considered smart, or popular (Gradassi et al., 2023)
    • Confident people are followed more, even when there is no information on whether they are right or not (Gradassi et al., 2022)
    • High-status teenagers can boost prosocial behaviour of their classmates (in prep.)
    • Adolescents learn to use social cues of confidence and expertise to improve their decisions over development (in prep.)
    • Sensitivity to peer influence in adolescents is helpful to explore uncertain environments (in progress)
