Welcome to the UCLA Uncertainty Laboratory Research Group.
What we study. Life is a series of gambles. From corporate mergers to personal investment, from legal and medical decisions to sports and casino betting, most decisions must be made without knowing in advance how they will turn out. Our laboratory research group investigates how people make judgments and decisions under conditions of risk and uncertainty. We explore these issues from the level of individuals to markets and organizations. We rely on a combination of experimental methods, from paper-and-pencil and interactive computer surveys to laboratory and field experiments, to analysis of market and archival data to physiological measurement and brain imaging techniques.
Who we are. Our group is comprised of UCLA faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and undergraduates. We adopt an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing on psychology and economics, as well as several management disciplines. Most of our members are based at the UCLA Anderson School and Psychology Department, though we collaborate with scholars around the world.
Major activities. Our research group meets weekly during the academic year to discuss current research projects. We also participate in seminars of the UCLA Behavioral Decision Making Group. We make use of the Anderson Behavioral Lab, the CASSEL Lab, and resources at the Psychology Department.
