Dr. Gonzalez’s research interests are in judgment and decision making broadly defined. He studies both normative and descriptive decision making using a variety of techniques including mathematical modeling, surveys, field observations, and experimental lab studies. He also extends his decision making research to applied settings in product design and medical decision making. Additionally, he does research in applied statistics, which can be construed as a form of decision making. Methodological contributions include analysis of dyadic and longitudinal data as well as new developments in analytic models that combine biological and behavioral processes.
