Madalina Vlasceanu, Ph.D.

Hi! I am an NYU Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow, studying the cognitive and social processes that shape individuals’ and collectives’ memories, beliefs, and behaviors, with direct applications for policy. Guided by a theoretical framework of investigation, I employ a large array of methods from behavioral experiments to brain imaging, and social network analysis, to uncover avenues in which science can be applied for social welfare (i.e., to stimulate climate action).

I obtained a PhD in Psychology and Neuroscience at Princeton University (2021), and a BA in Psychology and Economics from the University of Rochester (2016).
