His primary scientific interests are in Social psychology, Cognitive psychology, Heuristics, Description-experience gap and Inference. Deception is the focus of his Social psychology research. When carried out as part of a general Cognitive psychology research project, his work on Hindsight bias is frequently linked to work in Research findings, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.
His Heuristics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cumulative prospect theory, Ecological rationality and Risk perception. His Description-experience gap research includes elements of Econometrics, Actuarial science, Prospect theory and Stochastic game. His Inference study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Semantics, Cognitive science and Recognition heuristic, Heuristic.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Social psychology, Cognitive psychology, Heuristics, Actuarial science and Rationality. His Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Preference and Affect.
