Research interests

My research focus on the interplay of affect and deliberation (for example numeracy) in judgements and decision-making. Further, I have an interest of understanding changes in decision making that occurs as people age.

Current research Decision making across the lifespan, understanding the interplay of affect and deliberation in decision-making as well as prosocial behaviors and how these are connected to happiness and life satisfaction.


Current collaboration with University of Oregon (USA), University of Victoria (Canada), Decision Research (DR), Oregon and The Ohio State University (OSU).
