Her main research concerns Social psychology, Cognition, Cognitive psychology, Risk perception and Climate change. Social psychology and Risk taking are two areas of study in which she engages in interdisciplinary work. Her work on Wason selection task and Base rate fallacy as part of general Cognition study is frequently linked to Interpretation and Medical diagnosis, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
In Cognitive psychology, Elke U. Weber works on issues like Affect, which are connected to Executive functions, Volition and Arousal. The study incorporates disciplines such as Specific risk, Risk-seeking and Preference in addition to Risk perception. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Public economics and Environmental planning.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Social psychology, Risk perception, Climate change, Cognitive psychology and Cognition. Her Social psychology research includes elements of Intertemporal choice, Preference and Perception. Elke U. Weber interconnects Cultural diversity and Risk assessment in the investigation of issues within Risk perception.
Her research on Climate change focuses in particular on Global warming. Her study in Feeling extends to Affect with its themes.
Social psychology, Climate change, Choice architecture, Actuarial science and Sustainability are her primary areas of study. Her study in Social psychology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Worry and Perception. Her Choice architecture study combines topics in areas such as Psychological intervention, Nudge theory, Preference and Public policy.
Her research investigates the connection with Preference and areas like Hippocampal formation which intersect with concerns in Cognition. Elke U. Weber regularly ties together related areas like Affect in her Cognition studies. Her Actuarial science study deals with Default intersecting with Default - option and Autonomy.
Elke U. Weber mainly investigates Climate change, Social psychology, Choice architecture, Cognition and Public policy. Her work in the fields of Extreme weather and Global warming overlaps with other areas such as Focus. Her Social psychology study incorporates themes from Risk perception, Perception, Action, Risk assessment and Normative.
Her research integrates issues of Consistency, Deliberation, Personality and Expected utility hypothesis in her study of Risk perception. Her work deals with themes such as Cognitive psychology, Sustainability, Affect and Dynamic inconsistency, which intersect with Cognition. Many of her studies involve connections with topics such as Preference and Affect.
