Background:
Dr. Keren's research interest is in developing Naturalistic Decision Making models; especially, he is interested in developing predictive models for emergency responders' decision making under a variety of domains such as environmental constraints, organizational climates and cultures, and personal propensities. Naturalistic decision making is a school of thought that studies decision making in the natural environment of the decision maker and minimizes/eliminates the uncertainties and biases that laboratory studies introduce. Through the development of decision making models in virtual reality environments, Dr. Keren allows mimicking of a natural setting while preserving the qualities offered by controlled laboratory environments.
