• 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
