Personal profile

Personal Statement

My background is in psychology, philosophy, and economics. As a PhD researcher in the Strategy & Organisation department, I am applying cognitive psychological paradigms to investigate the intuitive logics of scenario planning. In particular, I am interested in where heuristic thinking is employed during the process, and how the resulting biases affect the process. As well, I am investigating whether the scenario process has countering effects on biased thinking. 

Along with my researh, I am regularly involved with scenario workshops led by George Wright and Ron Bradfield in order to expand my knowledge and gain expertise in leading future practioner-based workshops.

Like many others, I am often involved in side projects and studies. I am quite interested in the study of linguistics and often employ insights from the field into my own work. As well, risky decision making, and decisions under uncertainty are never far from my my own primary investigations.
