What we do

The Centre for Decision Research brings together researchers from across the University of Leeds, who have an interest in human decision making.

Founded in March 1996, the Centre for Decision Research has a strong multi-disciplinary focus that has led to research collaborations across a wide range of academic disciplines.

Members of the Centre carry out a broad range of decision research, much of it funded externally. They publish extensively in academic journals, edited books and practitioner journals, as well as presenting at major national and international conferences.
