•  DLDM: Nudge: How effective are policies designed to influence our everyday decision-  making when we struggle

        with self control?  - in collaboration with Dr Harris (Psychology UCL), Dr Wong (dept Management, Hang Sen

        Management school Hong Kong) and with Dr Meder (Max Planck, Berlin) we explore this  in a variety of contexts  (e.g.

        pensions plans, organ donation, health).

 

     • DLDM: Unconscious decision-making: Why do we believe that our unconscious is the basis on which we make

         decisions?  -  the project explores the attitudes and beliefs that the public have around unconscious intentions and

         unconscious emotions that bias their choices.

     

    •  DLDM: Risk and Uncertainty: How can we improve our estimates of risk and uncertainty in environments in  

        which  the conditions keep chaning?  - in collaboration with Dr Harris (Psychology UCL), Prof Löfstedt (risk          

        Management, Kings College London) we explore this and other related questions in the context of food safety,

        financial industries, and other expert decision-making domains. Follow link for a recent examination of a report by the

        OECD on Behavioural insights.

   • DLDM: Violence: Do we judge different violent acts in the same way? Do we weight different violent acts in the

        same way?  - in collaboration with Dr Baigent (Economics, LSE), Dr Marschelle (Psychology, QMUL), and Dr  

       Hannon  (Psychology, QMUL) we explore these questions at a basic science level, and the implications that have

       for policy based decisions regarding levels of violence in populations

 

  •  DLDM: Controlling our world: There is increasing dependence on self-monitoring systems in many everyday domains (e.g., EnergySmart British Gas monitor - home energy consumption) that are inherently dynamic. In collaboration with Prof Norman Fenton and Prof Martin Neil (Computer Science, Queen Mary University of London), and Dr David Lagnado (Dept of Psychology, UCL) the project examines decision making and causal reasoning processes that contribute to solving everyday problems.  

 

  • DLDM: Business, Finance & Management Environments: How do people make effective decisions in dynamic

         collaborative contexts? Organizations are just like any other dynamic control system -  in collaboration with Prof.  

        Purnam    (INSEAD, Management dept London Business School LBS), we examine this and related questions,

         such as how risk profiles and how they predict investment plans with Dr Wong (Hang Sen Management school    

         Hong Kong).
