Renato Frey is a cognitive psychologist studying how people make decisions under risk and uncertainty. His research focuses on the construct of risk preference and addresses question such as: How stable is a person’s risk preference across different situations and time? How can we best measure the cognitive processes underlying risk preference and interindividual differences therein? And to what extent is risk preference predictive for how people deal with the daily risks of our modern world? To this end, he uses quantitative methods (psychometric, cognitive, and predictive modeling) and implements both lab experiments and ecological assessments.
