Research

Broadly speaking, my research focuses on better understanding how people think, solve problems and make decisions. Within these remits, I have contributed to different research programmes which are summarised below.

Towards Outstanding Research Reviews (2019 - )

This research programme is funded by the Wellcome Trust Research on Research Awards (2019-2021) and aims to better understand how peer reviewers evaluate research proposals in grant funding applications.

Interactivity and cognition (2011 - )

This research programme aims to better understand how interactivity transforms higher cognition and impacts cognitive performance.

Healthcare workers and flu vaccination (2011 - )

This research programme aims to better understand the levels of autonomous drive towards vaccination and vaccination advocacy among health care professionals.

Behavioural insights (2001 - )

This research programme focuses on the cognitive processes, heuristics, and biases which underpin judgements of risk and uncertainty, choices, decision-making, problem solving and hypothesis testing.

Experimental pragmatics, uncertainty, and reasoning (2005 - 2013)

This research programme focuses on the pragmatic processes involved in communicating uncertainties, quantities and in logical reasoning.
