The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Social psychology
  • Cognition
  • Statistics

Rocio Garcia-Retamero mostly deals with Numeracy, Social psychology, Risk perception, Literacy and Applied psychology. His studies deal with areas such as Test, Cognitive psychology, Neglect and Public health as well as Numeracy. Many of his studies on Social psychology apply to Social environment as well.

He has researched Literacy in several fields, including Young adult and Cross-cultural studies. His Applied psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Experimental psychology, Cognition, Heuristic and Information processing. His Affect research includes themes of Developmental psychology, Information Dissemination, Attribution and Transformational leadership.

His most cited work include:

  • Measuring risk literacy: The Berlin numeracy test (346 citations)
  • Using icon arrays to communicate medical risks : Overcoming low numeracy (248 citations)
  • Prejudice against Women in Male-congenial Environments: Perceptions of Gender Role Congruity in Leadership (200 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Numeracy, Social psychology, Literacy, Developmental psychology and Cognition. Rocio Garcia-Retamero focuses mostly in the field of Numeracy, narrowing it down to matters related to Applied psychology and, in some cases, Test. His study in the field of Transformational leadership, Affect and Cross-cultural studies is also linked to topics like Icon.

His Literacy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Young adult and Artificial intelligence. In the subject of general Developmental psychology, his work in Autism and Autism spectrum disorder is often linked to Age groups, thereby combining diverse domains of study. Rocio Garcia-Retamero connects Cognition with Heuristics in his study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Numeracy (41.29%)
  • Social psychology (29.85%)
  • Literacy (20.90%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Numeracy (41.29%)
  • Social support (10.95%)
  • Risk communication (10.95%)

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

His main research concerns Numeracy, Social support, Risk communication, Literacy and Mental health. Rocio Garcia-Retamero works mostly in the field of Numeracy, limiting it down to concerns involving Cognition and, occasionally, Observational study, Taxonomy and Decision theory. His studies in Social support integrate themes in fields like Quality of life, Psychosocial, Autism, Autism spectrum disorder and Public health.

His Autism spectrum disorder study incorporates themes from Sibling and Clinical psychology. His Literacy research incorporates elements of Cancer screening, Promotion, Psychometrics, Scientific literacy and Risk assessment. The study incorporates disciplines such as Troponin, Internal medicine, Confidence interval, Health psychology and Depression in addition to Mental health.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Numerate decision makers donʿt use more effortful strategies unless it pays: A process tracing investigation of skilled and adaptive strategy selection in risky decision making (13 citations)
  • Numeracy and risk literacy: What have we learned so far? (11 citations)
  • What shapes the probability weighting function? Influence of affect, numeric competencies, and information formats (10 citations)

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

  • Social psychology
  • Statistics
  • Cognition

Rocio Garcia-Retamero mainly investigates Numeracy, Risk communication, Literacy, Mental health and Social support. His work deals with themes such as Psychological intervention, Contrast, Medical education, Disease and Clinical psychology, which intersect with Numeracy. Throughout his Risk communication studies, he incorporates elements of other sciences such as Cognitive psychology, Weighting, Judgement, Graph design and Risk analysis.

Rocio Garcia-Retamero combines subjects such as Bar chart, Debiasing and Management science with his study of Literacy. His Mental health research includes elements of Anxiety, Type D personality, Protective factor and Psychological resilience.
