The over-arching theme of the research is to combine mathematical and computational modelling of decision-making with experimental research into how people actually make decisions in order to better understand this process.

We have identified a set of research projects in which the cross-disciplinary approach will provide crucial new insights. Each project draws on the specialist knowledge of the core collaborators. The overall project will be focused on a linked set of research themes which we describe here.

Investigations of these topics will provide a platform on which to build successful cross-disciplinary working practices, and open the door to the next generation of questions to address at this important interface between science, engineering, and social science.
