Current research at the lab addresses (1) cognitive models of simple, perceptual and complex, conceptual decisions, (2) information processes underlying judgmental biases, and (3) how digital technologies can aid everyday decision-making. The research topics include cognitive processes in implicit attitudes (IAT, Shooter Task), lie detection and skill development.
