Personal profile

Research interests

I am very interested in explaining the psychology of how people take decisions in professional contexts and how this often expert/tacit knowledge can be used to improve the quality of these activities for individuals and organisations. My research focus is on managerial cognition and Naturalistic Decision Making (NDM); eliciting and documenting cognitive expertise in ill-defined organisational contexts. This work has captured the cognitive decision making processes of professionals in engineering, the military, day trading, aviation and management.  I have also explored the psychology of the decision making associated with executive reward, resulting in  new developments in behavioural agency theory.  My work has been funded by the ESRC, EPSRC, Dstl and UK Government.
