Decision making is using information to guide behavior among multiple possible courses of action - e.g. to move in some direction, to ingest something or not, or to favor one romantic partner over another. Such choices determine how an organism makes its way in the world, and hence affect its degree of success in meeting the challenges of life. Join the presenter for an interdisciplinary exploration into judgment and decision-making research and learn why the decision strategies modern humans (unconsciously) use are a result of the interaction between their evolved psychology and the environment in which they live.

Andreas Wilke is an assistant professor of psychology at Clarkson University. His postdoctoral research has taken him to Berlin, UCLA, Indiana University, Austria, and the University of Michigan. His research interests are in cognitive and evolutionary psychology, evolutionary and behavioral ecology, and biological anthropology.
