Dr. Camiilleri is an expert in the field of behavioral decision-making with special interests in risky choice and multi-attribute choice, especially as they relate to consumer and pro-social behavior.
Adrian is a consumer psychologist who uses experimental methods to understand, explain, and predict how people make judgments and decisions. Through his research, he attempts to understand how people’s choices are influenced by the way that information is presented and reveal what information formats produce the best choices.
His research interests include: human judgment and decision-making; consumer behaviour; decisions made under risk and uncertainty; behavioural economics; managerial decision-making; sustainable decision-making.
