Event details

This event will review my different strand of research related to risk and decision making.


In this talk, Prof Yaniv Hanoch will present several research areas that he has been exploring over the last few years. Chiefly among them, he will focus on fraud, medical risk communication, and issues related to autonomous vehicles.


Yaniv Hanoch is a decision scientist with an interdisciplinary background. His research focuses on decision-making and risk-taking across the lifespan and domains. In particular, he has been investigating the underlying mechanisms involved in falling prey to scams and what can be done to improve resilience to scam solicitations.

He is also involved in projects focusing on spreading misinformation and what can be done to protect individuals from misinformation. In addition, he is also interested in questions regarding health/medical decision-making, such as the impact of optimism bias on risk perception; how development trajectories impact risk-taking and decision-making across domains; and decisions regarding sustainability (e.g., meat consumption).

He has published extensively in economic, public health and psychology journals. His research has been published in leading journals such as the Journal of Behavioral Decision Making, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied, Health Psychology, Health Service Research, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Process, Psychological Science, Risk Analysis, and many others. He is currently an Associate Editor in the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics and Judgment and Decision Making.
