The Lab for
Social decision making & Risk
In our lab we study questions related to decision making in social contexts: including the study of reciprocity, trust, cooperation, fairness and honesty in social interactions. We are particularly interested in the effects of different types of reasoning (Intuitive/Deliberative) on these processes.
We also study questions related to the perception of risks and risk taking in different contexts. Specifically, we examine the construct of Passive Risks- risk brought on by inaction rather than by action and differentiate it from active risk tendency.
Students who are interested in joining our lab as undergraduate advised research or as M.A. or Ph.D. students are welcome to contact us.
