I am a professor of organisational behaviour and Director of the DART research group. I am interested in the role played by social, physical and/or mental processes in knowledge work performance. My areas of research expertise include occupational vaccination decisions, the mediating role of interactivity in cognitive performance, as well the role of intuition and deliberation a.k.a. “fast and slow” thinking in knowledge work and creativity.
I am a Professor of Occupational Therapy and Associate Dean of Research at the Joint Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education at Kingston University & St George’s, University of London. My research interests are in judgement and decision-making, clinical reasoning, the study of intuitive expert thinking and evidence based education. I’m looking to collaborate on studies of professional, patient or shared decision making and to facilitate introductions to academics in the Faculty at St George’s, University of London or Kingston University or to members of the Royal College of Occupational Therapists.
I am an experimental psychologist, working primarily on problem solving from a distributed cognition perspective. I run the Systemic Cognition Lab (SCL, https://syscoglab.com/) at the Department of Psychology, Kingston University, which is dedicated to the systemic study of higher cognition, including problem-solving, reasoning, judgement and decision-making.
I am an Associate Professor of Strategic Leadership. I am interested in the “human side” of strategic leaders (people who have overall responsibility for an organisation) – their characteristics, what they do, why and how – and how it affects organisational performance. My areas of research expertise include board directors and top management teams, corporate governance of international joint ventures, and expatriate (international human resources) management.
I am a postdoctoral researcher in judgment and decision-making psychology. I am interested in responsibility, comparative judgments, probability judgments, emotions (schadenfreude), framing, and desirability bias. In one of my current projects we are investigating how different ways of communicating unknown (epistemic) risk affects attribution of responsibility and blame. I am also interested in Additivity neglect (probability estimates for a set of outcomes that exceed 1 or 100%), and how this bias is affected by contextual differences, such as answering format.
My research aims to explore the circumstances in which faster intuitive thinking is more logical than slower deliberative thinking when making conjunction probability judgements. It supports the notion that people are sensitive to the conflict between logical and heuristic principles underlying the conjunction rule, and suggests that our intuition does not always mislead us; it can sometimes be aligned with rules of logic.
