My research focuses on visual perception and decision-making in financial contexts. I am interested in how lay people and professionals make financial decisions. Specifically, I investigate the impact that beliefs, emotions, and other states have on risk perception, risk assessment, forecasting, and the investor’s decisions. Currently, I carry out experiments to measure the impact that contextual factors have on people’s forecasting of portfolio graphs. The applications of my research extend to the development of instruments susceptible of helping professionals to make better decisions, strategies with regard to the presentation of financial information, and the assessment of risk perception and risk tolerance.
