Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Social psychology
  • Statistics
  • Cognition

His primary areas of investigation include Social psychology, Time pressure, Decision rule, Decision analysis and Preference. His research integrates issues of Judgement and Cognition in his study of Social psychology. The concepts of his Cognition study are interwoven with issues in Standardized test, Simulation and Family medicine.

Ola Svenson studied Decision analysis and Decision tree that intersect with Accident analysis. His Evidential reasoning approach research incorporates elements of Management science and Optimal decision. His Cognitive psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Task adaptation and Human judgment.

His most cited work include:

  • ARE WE ALL LESS RISKY AND MORE SKILLFUL THAN OUR FELLOW DRIVERS (1424 citations)
  • Process descriptions of decision making. (567 citations)
  • Time pressure and stress in human judgment and decision making (402 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Social psychology, Cognition, Statistics, Cognitive psychology and Attractiveness. His work in Social psychology tackles topics such as Decision analysis which are related to areas like Optimal decision. He has researched Optimal decision in several fields, including Management science and Decision rule.

His Working memory study in the realm of Cognition interacts with subjects such as Simple. His Statistics research incorporates themes from Travel time and Simulation. His Simulation research includes themes of Speed limit and Task.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Social psychology (37.40%)
  • Cognition (17.56%)
  • Statistics (14.50%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Social psychology (37.40%)
  • Cognitive psychology (13.74%)
  • Time saving (8.40%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Ola Svenson mainly focuses on Social psychology, Cognitive psychology, Time saving, Simulation and Statistics. The Social psychology study combines topics in areas such as Emotional regulation, Regret and Investment decisions. The concepts of his Cognitive psychology study are interwoven with issues in Range, Cognition, Business decision mapping and Coherence.

His Cognition research incorporates themes from Decision problem, Perception and Artificial intelligence. His Simulation research also works with subjects such as

  • Debiasing that connect with fields like Speedometer and Traffic planning,
  • Speed limit which connect with Collision, Outcome, Affect heuristic, Overconfidence effect and Affect. Ola Svenson works mostly in the field of Statistics, limiting it down to topics relating to Travel time and, in certain cases, Illusion.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Driving speed changes and subjective estimates of time savings, accident risks and braking (40 citations)
  • Post-decision consolidation and distortion of facts (20 citations)
  • Braking from different speeds: Judgments of collision speed if a car does not stop in time (18 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Social psychology
  • Cognition

Ola Svenson mainly focuses on Social psychology, Statistics, Speed limit, Time saving and Travel time. His Social psychology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Emotional regulation and Cognitive psychology. His studies in Cognitive psychology integrate themes in fields like Time perception, Cognition, Perception, Control and Driving simulator.

His work on Production expands to the thematically related Statistics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Affect, Overconfidence effect, Affect heuristic, Simulation and Outcome. His work in Travel time addresses issues such as Traffic speed, which are connected to fields such as Trip length and Heuristic.
