Dr Eva M. Krockow studied Psychology at the University of Leicester and International Politics for a Masters at Durham University. Following three years of professional employment in the field of international development, which led her to Belgium, West Africa and Germany, she returned to academia, and completed her research towards a PhD in psychological decision making and game theory at the University of Leicester. In particular, she used experimental games to investigate human cooperation, altruism and trust in different decision situations. She now focuses on more applied decision making, mainly in the healthcare context. For example, she investigates how doctors and patients make choices about different medication and treatment.
