Ellen Peters
Professor of Psychology and Director of the Behavioral Decision Making Initiative
Ohio State University
Tuesday, March 24, 2015, 12:00 pm-1:30 pm
112 Paterson Street, 1st floor conference room
Ellen Peters, PhD is Professor of Psychology and Director of the Behavioral Decision Making Initiative at The Ohio State University. She conducts basic and applied research in judgment and decision making. She has worked extensively with the U.S. National Cancer Institute and Food and Drug Administration to advance the science of human decision making as it applies to health and health policy. Dr. Peters focuses on understanding the basic building blocks of human judgment and decision making especially how affective, intuitive and deliberative processes help people to make decisions in an increasingly complex world. She studies decision making as an interaction of characteristics of the decision situation and characteristics of the individual. In applied research, she focuses on risk perception and risk communication in health, financial and environmental contexts including how to present information to facilitate its comprehension and use. Recently, she has been interested in the psychological mechanisms underlying tobacco use and prevention and how to "nudge" people towards healthier behaviors.
