James Elfer is Founder of Morethannow, a research practice that applies behavioral science to workplace contexts. Magda is Reader in Experimental Cognitive Psychology, the Alan Turing Research Fellow and Head of Dynamic Learning and Decision Making Lab at Queen Mary University of London. The ethos of her work has been to take a critical eye to well accepted views and challenge the status quo. As a result, her research and writing interests cover a range of areas that include decision-making, learning, problem-solving, biases, risk and uncertainty, agency and control, and the unconscious. Her work also helps to show that methods, such as nudges, designed to improve our decision-making are not reliable, are ethically problematic, and that the public have concerns about them, especially if the nudges are designed by government bodies compared to scientists.
