Jared weaves the science of behavior change with Naturalistic Decision-Making which researches how individuals navigate choices in complex situations marked by uncertainty, high stakes, time pressure, and dynamic environments. Recognizing that generic interventions often overlook the subtleties of a situation, he emphasizes the importance of context as well as understanding both the strengths and weaknesses of intuition. Drawing upon this multi-disciplinary approach, Jared addresses diverse challenges, from enhancing the ability of apps to effect behavior change, to healthcare worker compliance, to training de-escalation strategies in law enforcement.
