Hello! I’m Noemi, a survey researcher and psychological scientist with a passion for photography.

Since finishing my PhD in Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford in 2020, I have worked on conducting surveys of the public and expert populations concerning their views on artificial intelligence and AI governance. I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for the Governance of AI. I am motivated by the idea that it is crucial to develop and deploy this emerging technology in a way that is in the best interests of the public and that allows for a just and fair society and human flourishing in the near-, mid- and long-term. You can have a look at my CV and check out the most recent work here and here.

My further expertise spans from the fields of leadership and business psychology to multisensory perception and philosophy of mind. Beyond survey research and experimental psychology, I specialise in conducting literature reviews and offering research and editorial support to authors writing non-fiction books.
