I am a lecturer in Psychology and Security. My past research has explored high stakes decision making in the context of multi-agency emergency responding. Specifically, I am interested in the concept of ‘decision inertia’: the psychological phenomenon whereby individuals fail to commit to a choice due to redundant deliberation. More broadly, I am interested in ‘real-world’ decision making; combining both quantitative and qualitative methods to explore decision making in naturalistic environments. I have also worked on projects investigating police decision making and forensic psychology.
