I am a psychologist interested in judgment and decision making. In my research I ask questions such as what guides people’s decision-making behavior, how they take risks, and what factors impact their judgments? I tackle these issues using lab or online experiments, applying a mostly quantitative approach to the analysis of behavior.

Lately, I’m interested in how people judge decisions made by algorithmic systems, personalization as a way of to impact choice, and crowd judgments such as the inner crowd effect.

I hold a research position at Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics in the Netherlands.
