In my PhD work, I look at how information obtained from others as compared to personal experience is used in risky decision-making.

I have also been working on the idea that people might have different opinions about information only because of one property of the social source delivering it, not because of the content itself.

I have a scientist brain and an activist heart. I constantly think of the ways to implement cutting edge cognitive and behavioural research to improve current practises that can significantly improve short- and long-term safety and the wellbeing of society.

I am always happy to speak about all things decision-making and behaviour at present and its effects on the future, alleviation of risks and dealing with uncertainty.
