My research interests are focused on the influence of individual differences (e.g.: emotions and emotion regulation strategies, personality traits and cognitive factors) on various aspects of decision making. These research interests are subordinated to the more general fields of economic psychology and cognitive psychology. Facets of the decision-making process that I have investigated in recent years include situations that involve risk and ambiguity in decision-making, gambling and bargaining tasks, as well as susceptibility to framing and other cognitive distortions involved in the decisions. The investigations undertaken have a common goal of better understanding and more accurate prediction of human decision-making behavior. Research domains: Economic Psychology, Cognitive Psychology.
