Dr. Blais' research focuses on risk perceptions and decision making. She examines individual differences in decision making, risk perceptions and attitudes, modes/strategies of decision making, theories of stress and coping, and applied statistics and psychometircs. A central aspect of this work is how people "read minds" to make inferences about what others think, want and feel.
