Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Gore is a Chartered Psychologist, Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and member of the Occupational and Organizational Psychology Division. Her research focus is on cognition and Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM); eliciting and documenting cognitive expertise in ill-defined, uncertain organisational contexts aiming to explain and accurately capture how people take decisions in thier professional work.  Findings from her research suggest how this often expert/tacit knowledge can be effectively used to improve the quality of decision making for individuals and organisations. Her work has captured the cognitive decision making processes of professionals in management, health, engineering, the military, day trading, and aviation. Her work has also explored the psychology of the decision making associated with executive reward, resulting in new theoretical insights in Behavioural Agency Theory.  Dr Gore's work has been funded by the ESRC, EPSRC, Dstl and UK Government.

Dr Gore is a nominated  ESRC Peer-Review College Member,  former elected Member of Council for the British Academy of Management and also serves as a member of the editorial boards of the British Journal of Management, Frontiers in Organizational Psychology and is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology.
