Dr. Jonathan Fugelsang

Professor

Dr. Jonathan FugelsangDr. Fugelsang is a Professor of Psychology at the University of Waterloo. His research focuses on how we reason about and integrate multiple, often conflicting, pieces of evidence when making complex decisions. In particular, his work examines how intuitive versus analytical thinking processes contribute to this decision-making process. These decisions may involve analogical, causal, deductive, or inductive processes. In the context of problem gambling, he is investigating how various slot machine structural characteristics may influence decisions made by problem and non-problem gamblers, and how individual differences in intuitive versus analytic thinking styles may make problem gamblers particularly susceptible to certain structural characteristics of popular slot machines.
