Research Intrests & Bio

I am focused on two main interests. One is Dynamic Decision Making: With this work I’m attempting to move away from the simple tasks that have traditionally exemplified judgment and decision making research. Instead, I am trying to understand how people make sequences of interrelated decisions in complex, uncertain environments. My second line of research is Information Integration: This work deals with how people combine multiple sources of evidence when making choices and inferences. More specifically, I'm investigating the factors that lead to sub-optimal combination in some circumstances and near-optimal combination in others.
