My main research interests lie in the area of Judgment & Decision Making. Specifically, much of my research investigates how probabilities are estimated, communicated and used so as to guide subsequent decision making. This work has implications in the domains of risk perception and risk communication. I also have ongoing projects in reasoning where I am interested in concepts relating to source reliability and coherence.

Adam’s work focuses primarily on how people estimate, perceive and communicate risk. How important is the reliability of the information source? Does it matter how the information is conveyed?
