Teaching

Highlights: Cognitive Psychology, Decision Making, and Research Methods.

Ph.D. Areas: Cognitive and Neural Sciences

Research

Highlights: Issues of judgment and decision making, including how the way information is described or 'framed' influences decisions and behavior, the influence of framing in such contexts as making risky decisions, and people's metacognitive abilities or their ability to predict how well they perform at a variety of tasks.
