Risk, evidence and decision making

In an increasingly complex world, our research is penetrating deep into how decisions on risk are made and how they are shaped by technological, social and cultural factors. By drawing on our understanding of these factors, we can provide government and industry with improved risk models and help influence policies resulting in better-informed decision making.
