Ph.D

I am equally fascinated by how decisions (1) ought to be made, (2) are actually made, (3) and how we can close the gap between the first two.

My dissertation focuses on risky choice behavior following near-miss events. My research further focuses on the psychological aspects of change detection and I am also interested in individual differences in decision-making.

I am a member of the Decision Analysis Society (INFORMS) as well as a co-editor of the Ask DAS column of Decision Analysis Today.

I am also affiliated with the Behavioral Operations Management Section at INFORMS, the European Association of Decision Making (EADM), the International Institute of Forecasters, and the Academy of Management.
