Welcome to the CBDR website

Our group studies how people make decisions in the complex modern world full of risk and uncertainty. We specifically focus on the cognitive processes involved in inter- and intraindividual differences in people's risk perceptions and various risk-taking behaviors, as well as on behavioral interventions and risk communication more generally. To this end we implement various empirical methods such as lab experiments, online studies, and ecological assessments, and we employ diverse data-science methods for cognitive, psychometric, and statistical modeling.
