In 2010 she was a visiting scholar at the Laboratory of Rational Decision Making at Cornell University where she focused on aspects related to numeracy and decision-making based on probability information. Dr. Furlan is currently a post-doctoral Fellow in the Department of Developmental Psychology and Socialization at the University of Padua.
