Experience

Professor Wändi Bruine de Bruin holds a University Leadership Chair in Behavioural Decision Making at the Leeds University Business School, where she also serves as the co-director of the Centre for Decision Research. She also holds affiliations with Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Southern California, and the RAND Corporation. In 2015, she has also been a Visiting Research Scholar at the Dutch Central Bank. Her research aims to address how people make decisions affecting their environmental, health, and financial outcomes, and, if needed, how to design communications to improve those decisions.  Specific research interests individual differences in decision-making competence across the life span, risk perception, and risk communication. 

Wändi is a member the editorial board of the Journal of Experimental Psychology : Applied, the Journal of Behavioral Decision Making, the Journal of Risk Research, and Psychology ; Aging. She served as the co-editor of a special issue on decision-making competence for the Journal of Behavioral Decision Making (2012)  and for Frontiers in Psychology (2015), as well as a special issue on risk communication for Current HIV Research (2015).  She is a member of the Scientific & Technical Committee of the International Risk Governance Council (IRGC), which provides evidence-based advice to international policy makers. She has contributed her expertise to a recent expert panel report on health product risk communication by the Council of Canadian Academies, as well as to expert workshops at the US Environmental Protection Agency, the US Federal Reserve, and the US Food and Drug Administration.

 

Her current research projects include:

Research

Throughout their lives, people face many important decisions affecting their health, finances, and environmental impacts. Policy makers and practitioners must decide whether these decisions are in need of improvement, and if so, how to help people to improve these decisions. The overall goal of my research is to use the theories and methods from behavioral decision research to understand and improve how people make decisions. Below, I will briefly discuss my research on (1) individual differences in decision-making competence across the life span, and (2) risk perception and developing effective communication; and (3) Consumer expectations of inflation and the economy.

 

Individual differences in decision-making competence across the life span 

With funding from the US National Science Foundation, this project involved the development and validation of a comprehensive measure of Adult Decision-Making Competence (A-DMC), which used well-known judgment and decision-making tasks (Bruine de Bruin et al., 2007).  I have now received an EU Marie Career Integration Grant to examine changes in decision-making competence across the adult lifespan. This new research aims  to understand the role of age-related changes in cognitive ability, motivation, and experience in decision making (Bruine de Bruin et al., 2012; 2014; 2015).  We have also used our measure to evaluate educational interventions that aim to teach better decision-making competence to people of all ages (Jacobson et al., 2012). A-DMC provides a valid measure of to study individuals’ decision-making skills, the role of decision-making competence in specific decisions, group comparisons in decision-making competence of different groups, and, perhaps most importantly, to evaluate the effectiveness of decision-making classes. The A-DMC measure can be downloaded from http://www.sjdm.org/dmidi/Adult_-_Decision_Making_Competence.html.

 

New research projects on this topic include:

·         Age-related changes in decision making (EU Marie Curie CIG)

·         Financial distress in older adults (EU Marie Curie IIF)

 

Risk perception and effective communication

To make more informed decisions about their health, finances, and environmental impacts, people need to understand the risks and benefits of the available alternatives. Risk communications aim to provide that information. However, it is often difficult for experts to understand the informational needs of their audiences (Bruine de Bruin & Bostrom, 2013). This line of research aims to improve the design of risk communications by first conducting formative research with members of its intended audience, so as to better understand what they need and want to know. An initial DVD intervention taught female adolescents sexual decision making skills, and to negotiate safer sex practices with a sexual partner. Compared to controls in a randomized controlled trial, intervention recipients were more likely than controls to have sex, had fewer condom failures if they did have sex, and were less likely to be diagnosed with sexually transmitted infections (Bruine de Bruin, Downs, et al., 2007; Downs et al., 2004). Since that initial project, I have broadened my work on risk communication to other topics. Most involve collaborations with domain experts who recognize the need to involve social scientists to understand how audiences think about topics such as climate change (Taylor et al., 2014), heatwaves (Lefevre et al., 2015), energy conservation (Schwartz et al., 2015, low-carbon energy generation technologies (Mayer et al., 2014), and smart meters (Krishnamurti et al., 2012).

New research projects on this topic include:

·      Public perceptions of climate change (ESRC)

·         Consumer decisions about food (ESRC seminar series)

·         Consumer perceptions of home energy use (ESRC Consumer Data Research Centre)

 

Consumer expectations of inflation and the economy

My initial work for this topic examined the extent to which people can predict significant life events relevant to economic decisions (Bruine de Bruin et al., 2007). Subsequent research examined the psychological processes underlying the formation of inflation expectations, which focus on experiences with specific prices (Bruine de Bruin et al., 2010; 2011). My colleagues and I have developed survey design strategies that build on those psychological processes (Bruine de Bruin et al., 2012). We have examined the validity of those inflation expectations, to examine whether survey respondents are willing to act on their beliefs (Armantier et al., 2015). We are currently examining interview vs. web-survey mode effects in consumer surveys of economic expectations. Our results will inform the design of the national consumer surveys, which are used by economists and central bankers.

Teaching

Professor Wändi Bruine de Bruin teaches Risk Perception and Communication (5202M). This module aims to help future executives, policy makers, financial advisors, health professionals, and other practitioners to gain a critical understanding of how non-experts perceive risks, how non-experts’ risk perceptions vary and deviate from those of experts, as well as how to effectively communicate risk information to diverse audiences. This module covers the main findings of the risk perception literature, and how to design our own interviews and surveys so as to learn more about how people perceive specific risks. We also discuss how to design and evaluate our own communication materials so as to improve people’s risk perceptions and their associated decisions. Applications focus on the contexts of finance, behavioural economics, public health, sustainability, and climate change.
