Biography

Dr Gabriel Tillman investigates the psychology of decision making.

Dr Tillman has developed and tested a range of cognitive models that explain and predict how people make decisions. This work also involves understanding the neurophysiology that carries out the mental processes of decision making. Gabriel has applied these models in a range of domains where he has looked at the relationship between decision making and distracted driving, negative emotional states, speech perception and word recognition.

Gabriel was awarded a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours I) and a PhD in cognitive psychology from the University of Newcastle. Following his PhD, Gabriel worked at Vanderbilt University as a postdoctoral research fellow before joining Federation University Australia as a Lecturer in psychology.
