IMPROVING DECISION MAKING THROUGH SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
Directed by Dr. Edward Cokely, the Decision Science and Decision Engineering Laboratory at Michigan Technological University specializes in the psychology of superior decision making with emphasis on assessment and mathematical modeling of individual differences (e.g. abilities, traits, cognition, biases) and related applications in health, finance, and education (e.g., risk communication, decision support, intelligent tutoring systems, usability, consumer protection). Together, we integrate science and technology in order to predict, inform, and improve decision making.
