I conduct research within the emerging field of behavioral decision-making. My primary research topic is the development and evaluation of mathematical models of individual and group decision-making. My recent work examines how individuals integrate multiple pieces of information when making a decision and the "rationality" of various decision strategies. I am also interested in evaluating the performance of various decision rules in the context of the linear model.
Dr. Clintin Davis-Stober is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences at the University of Missouri. He holds a Ph.D. in Quantitative Psychology and an M.S. in Mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He was recently awarded the William K. Estes Early Career Award from the Society for Mathematical Psychology. He is currently serving as an associate editor at the British Journal for Statistical and Mathematical Psychology.
