Camilla Colombo is a post-doctoral researcher. After her MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy, she obtained in 2019 her PhD in Philosophy of Science at the London School of Economics, with a thesis on causal models grounding the doing/allowing distinction. Her research interests cover applied ethics and decision theory, with a focus on the cognitive foundations of decision theory, non-standard reasoning processes, moral heuristics, and moral framing. She is particularly interested in how cooperation is sustained and achieved in interactions, and in the use of moral principles as decision tools. Before joining RWTH, she worked at IMT School of Advanced Studies Lucca, where she worked on the project “From Models to Decisions” and at the University of Milano, where she collaborated with the newly funded PhiLab for experimental philosophy.
