Romina Fuca
University of Verona
Verona, Italy

Romina Fucà received her BA in political science from the University of Palermo, and her PhD in systems theory from the University of Macerata. For the past two decades she has researched postwar totalitarianism. Her work presents insights into probability and conditionalities in subjective preferences, with philosophical approaches to decision-making in human affairs when it is strongly vulnerable to, and at the same time boosted by, uncertainties.

Romina is a passionate reader. A few years ago, she came across the writings of mathematician and social scientist R. Duncan Luce. Since then, she has continuously moved from one computer science subject to the next. She is currently interested in the application of axiomatic probability in the social sciences to better understand human thought.

Romina has authored many papers in sociology as well as a book on the Schengen Area and security systems. She is a PhD tutor for distance learning at the University of Verona’s School of Economics and Management; a member of the Reviewer Board for MDPI’s Sustainability journal; and serves on Frontiers in Law’s editorial board. She has been a reviewer for Computing Reviews since early 2022.
