Affect and Emotion
Our research builds upon recent work in cognitive and social psychology, and in cognitive neuroscience to develop and test an affect-based theory of judgment and decision making.
Interpretive Communities of Risk
Risks and risk management occur within a rich and complex sociocultural context, in which particular groups are predisposed to select, ignore, and interpret risk information in different ways. Our research is part of a broad program to understand the sociocultural dynamics of risk perception, decision making, and behavior.
Numeracy and Literacy
Our research examines the effect of varying levels of numeracy (number ability) and literacy on judgment and decision making, particularly in the areas of healthcare and finance.
