[Research field]
Societies around the world are now changing rapidly and in accelerating speeds. Research disciplines for studies of human being have not caught up with the rapid changes of the societies. To address these issues, our laboratory combines the research fields of decision science such as neuroeconomics, behavioral economics, psychology. In addition to the research fields of individual decision making, we will extend and connect principles of decision making, which are found in experimental rooms, to decision making at group and society levels with the aid of analysis techniques of big data, which are developed in new fields of collective behavior such as computational social science. Our research will bring about positive impacts to people in society by humanizing practices of work environments and by creating sustainable designs of social systems. We welcome eager and ambitious participants in this exciting research endeavor to create positive values for people in our global society.
