DPhil Student and Research Assistant
My work is being conducted as an interdisciplinary project between OxSTAR and the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford. My research interests are based on investigating the sources of confidence miscalibrations in diagnoses. I am especially interested in how doctors’ confidence guide their information seeking and how information seeking behaviour differs between novice and experienced clinicians. This involves looking at how novices and experts weigh up and test hypotheses when formulating differential diagnoses. My work will involve computer-based, VR and simulated scenarios.
