Thalia Vrantsidis is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Cognitive Science of Values at the University Center for Human Values. She is interested broadly in what it means to understand and to think well. Her research has focused on applying this to stereotyping and social inferences, to examine how information about people's social groups can both help and hinder our ability to make accurate inferences about others, as well as how this relates to the moral implications of stereotyping. She is also interested more generally in what it means to have good theories or explanations, including how these ideas might be formalized, for example, through Bayesian models. She holds a B.A. and Ph.D in Psychology from the University of Toronto.
