Managerial Cognition

How are strategic decisions made? How do managers deal with uncertainty when making decisions? Are managers subject to bias when making decisions? Does overconfidence affect top managers? These and other questions have been of interest to me in my research and resulted in a number of publications.

I’m an active member of the Managerial and Organizational Cognition (MOC) division of the Academy of Management, including serving on the Executive Committee, and organizing the 2015 Frontiers in MOC Conference. I am also co-editor of the New Horizons in MOC book series, published by Emerald.
