Prof. Dr. Mirta Galesic (Santa Fe Institute, United States)

Title: Effects of outgroup threat on group diversity and performance

Mirta Galesic is Professor at the Santa Fe Institute. She uses modeling and empirical research to study how simple cognitive mechanisms interact with social network structures to produce complex social phenomena, from belief dynamics to collective performance.
