Research Associate at the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication

Gabriel Recchia is a research associate at the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication. His current projects focus on the communication of genetic risk, and communicating risks and benefits of medical treatment. He also conducts research on distributional models for extracting useful information from large bodies of text and their applications in the cognitive and social sciences.

Until recently, he was at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, where he developed computational methods for the analysis of large corpora of historical texts, and investigated conceptual change by attending to shifting statistical associations between words over time. His graduate research concerned the development of interpretable computational models of semantic memory and how the statistical structure of the environment interacts with learning mechanisms to produce complex behavior.
