Every spring, the Decision Sciences Collaborative hosts a Research Forum in which the awardees of Decision Sciences' Small Research Grants for Faculty and Students present their research.
On Friday, April 17, 2015 from 3-5:30pm in Psychology Room 035, we will hold our annual research forum. We'll have talks and posters from faculty as well as students who have been funded by our collaborative. Appetizers will be available during the poster session.
Abstracts are available here.
Opening remarks will be offered by Gifford Weary, dean, social and behavioral sciences and professor of psychology. Our keynote speaker will be Laura Scherer from the University of Missouri. The title of her talk is "Confidence in deliberation: The consequences of deliberative and intuitive thought modes on decision quality and satisfaction."
Scherer's research is primarily concerned with when, how and to what advantage people use spontaneous associations and “gut feelings” in judgment. In her work, Scherer addresses how spontaneous feelings, versus deliberative reasoning, can influence life-altering medical decisions. This latter work aims to inform the development of patient decision support tools.
Graduate student talk titles are available here.
