Yovanni Antonelli

Post-Graduate Researcher in Behavioral Data Science and Social Psychology

Mindfulness is the common denominator toward positive behavioral change on both individual and societal levels. What are the mechanisms in which we can cultivate this mindfulness leading to reduced cognitive error, corrected maladaptive psychological processes, and flourishing well-being for non-clinical populations is in sum the focal area of Yovanni Antonelli’s research. She employs sophisticated empirical, systematic methodology to gain insight into this domain - more than often leading to counterintuitive findings.

Currently, Yovanni has been working specifically on identifying the correlates of a rewarding life. The 3C or “cookie” model includes challenge, social connectedness, and choice (control) as fundamental components towards fulfilling universalizable human motivation. Future research includes further teasing out nuances of these social-cognitive phenomena.
