Dr Tiffany Morisseau is Human Factor Research Manager at Strane Innovation. She has a Master’s degree in Management from AUDENCIA Business School (Nantes, France) and a PhD in Cognitive Psychology from the University of Lyon, which she obtained in 2014. She has a business experience in Human Resources, and an academic expertise in social cognition, developmental psychology, experimental pragmatics and eye-tracking methodology. During her PhD, she explored the role of intentionality and social affiliation in the processing of communicative inferences. Her post-doctoral project, funded by the Fyssen Foundation in collaboration with Dan Sperber within the ERC Synergy project SOMICS (Constructing Social Minds), aimed at making use of tools from experimental pragmatics to study the mechanisms of transmission of practices and beliefs involved in social interactions. She then joined the MINds and Traditions (MINT) team of Olivier Morin at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena (Germany), to participate in the development of The Color Game, a smartphone application designed to study the dynamics of language evolution. Since January 2019, Tiffany leads Strane’s projects in Human Sciences, with a specific focus on the question of acceptance. These projects include the acceptance of robots in industrial contexts, critical thinking, collective intelligence and research on careers with positive social impact. She is also the webmaster of the International Cognition and Culture Institute , an online discussion forum devoted to cognitive anthropology. Tiffany is fluent in French and English.
