CDR welcomes Josh Weller

CDR welcomes Dr Joshua Weller, who joins us from Tilburg University (The Netherlands), where he served as an Assistant Professor in Developmental Psychology.  Josh received his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Iowa in 2007.His research broadly focuses on how affective and cognitive processes contribute to decision-making and risk perceptions. More specifically, he studies individual differences in the perception of uncertainty and how individuals make rational choices, both in terms of how these tendencies develop over the lifespan as well as identifying factors that may contribute to more effective decision-making. His research has been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, the American Automobile Association Foundation, and the National Institute of Drug Abuse (US).
