Our research aims to have a real world impact, branching into a wide range of subjects associated with behavioural science.
Professor Neil Stewart and Dr Naomi Muggleton investigated the association between gambling as a proportion of monthly income and 31 financial social and health outcomes in a recent paper published in Nature Human Behaviour.
What is the effect of air pollution on our wellbeing? This investigation used results from 34,000 randomly sampled English citizens across 318 geographical areas.
Being in an area of great natural beauty has long been considered to bring us a greater sense of happiness. But why? What are the characteristics of these environments that lift our mood?
We use approaches from the social sciences, the natural sciences and engineering to discover the insights that Big Data offers into human behaviour and decision making.
DR@W is an interdisciplinary collaboration of researchers from a variety of departments at Warwick interested in decision making. We hold weekly seminars focusing on new and unpublished works which are open to all.
We have a dedicated research laboratory with 27 networked computers, each within their own cubicle. Participants can run experiments independently or as a group.
