Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Joshua Weller's research focuses on how broadly affective and cognitive processes contribute to decision-making and risk perceptions. Dr. Weller is currently conducting research addressing four specific questions: (1) How do decision-making abilities change from childhood to older age? (2) In what ways May child maltreatment impact the development and synthesis abilities? (3) How does stress impact decision making? and (4) To what degree do individual differences in personality correlate with decision-making processes and risk perceptions?
