Our research

Our research examines the behavioral processes underlying irrational and complex decision making. Using a use-inspired approach to basic research, our studies seek to bridge the science and practice of behavioral decision making to promote sustainable health outcomes. Borrowing from the emerging sciences of behavioral and neuroeconomics, we translate principles of economics, behavioral science, and psychology to quantitatively model, predict, understand, and ultimately intervene on poor decision making. Areas of translational focus include understanding and improving decision making associated with (a) complex choices involving delayed or probabilistic outcomes, (b) environmental sustainability, and (c) behavioral addictions.
