About

I am a professor of organisational behaviour, director of research for the department of management at Kingston University Business School and head of the Decision, Attitudes, Risk and Thinking research group. I studied at Paris Ouest University (1998, MSc Social Psychology) and the University of Hertfordshire (2004, PhD) then was a lecturer at the Leeds University Business School (2001-2004) and the University of Toulouse (2004-2009) before joining Kingston University in 2009. My expertise lies in behavioural sciences and my research focuses on the role played by social, physical and/or mental processes in decision-making, reasoning and uncertainty judgements, both in the lab and in applied settings. Specifically current projects include a study of the role of intuition in judgements, a study of the role of autonomous drive in healthcare workers' vaccination decisions and vaccination advocacy and a study of systemic thinking in risky choice framing effects. My work has been published in leading psychology journals such as the Journal of Experimental Psychology - General, Psychological Science, Cognition, Memory & Cognition and Acta Psychologica among others. My research has been funded by the Fyssen foundation (2004), the French National Research Agency (2008), the Leverhulme Trust (2011), and Sanofi-Pasteur (2013). a professor of organisational behaviour, director of research for the department of management at Kingston University Business School and head of the Decision, Attitudes, Risk and Thinking research group.
