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.

AninePhoto_SmallDr Anine Riege, Postdoctoral Researcher
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 and evolving preferences and perspectives which influence career decision-making processes over the growing lifespan.


egleMs Egle Butt, PhD Student
My research interests lie in the area of judgment and decision-making. Specifically, what factors influence our understanding of probability terms and how to best tailor risk communication in contexts such as criminal litigation and climate change.

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.

emmaMs Emma Henderson, PhD Student
I am an experimental psychologist interested in the heuristics we use to make every day judgements and decisions. My main lines of empirical research focus on belief perseverance, self-control and online decision making. I am passionate about using and promoting open science practices including pre-registration and open data.

niyatMs Niyat Henok, PhD Student
My research aims to investigate whether manipulating interactivity levels would have an effect on performance in an insight problem.
