Derek Schatz

Ph.D. Student
I am a Ph.D. student at the University of California, Berkeley in the Management of Organizations group at the Haas School of Business. I currently explore a variety of topics relating to status, overconfidence, and social judgment in the workplace. Prior to enrolling at Haas, I conducted research at UC Berkeley as an undergraduate Psychology major studying power and perceptual effects on motivation.


Amelia Dev

Laboratory manager
My name is Amelia and I'm an undergraduate research assistant at the Moore Accuracy Lab as of Spring '16. I'm a junior Psychology major at Cal with aspirations to pursue some sort of graduate/doctorate degree; my ultimate goal is to work and/or research in the field of Clinical Psychology. I'm thrilled to be involved with the awesome people and projects at the Moore Lab and excited to learn more about the science behind overconfidence. When I'm not doing academia-related things, you can find me at the RSF or hiking in the hills.


Sydney Mayes

Research Assistant
I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2013 with a B.A. in Cognitive Science and emphases in Cognitive Psychology and Neuroscience. After working in the food startup space, I am now looking forward to doing research in judgment and decision-making and working with the Accuracy Lab team. I am interested in how people make decisions under uncertainty and I hope to contribute to research that will help us improve our forecasts, which inform and guide our decisions. I am also interested in human-centered design and user experience research, methodologies and fields that can benefit greatly from research in the behavioral sciences and vice versa. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, keeping tabs on the food and beverage world, and writing about the intersection of cognitive science and food.


Ekaterina Goncherova

Undergraduate Research Assistant
I am currently a second year student at UC Berkeley, double majoring in Psychology and Neurobiology. I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, but grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida. My interest in psychology is shaped by the polarized political views of the country where I grew up. Decision making in particular is what fascinates me about people: how is it that some could rely on algorithms, some advice from their loved ones, and others can base their opinions on a complete stranger's input. I believe decision making does not encompass all of the characteristics that make people unique, but the neurobiological bases helps to understand the reasoning behind unethical actions. This is exactly what I hope to research in the future, and I cannot imagine a better place to start than the Accuracy Lab.


Shreya Agarwal

Undergratduate Research Assistant
I am a second year undergraduate student majoring in Economics and Statistics. I started working with Moore Accuracy Lab in Spring 2016 as I wished to explore creative ways to incorporate the use of algorithms in various processes to make decision-making more efficient and effective. Currently, I am working on understanding over-confidence in organizational behavior. During my free time, I enjoy dancing and traveling.


Cody Strohl

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I am a Junior transfer from Irvine Valley College that is pursuing an Economics degree now at Cal. I first became acquainted with Don's research after encountering it in my undergrad where I studied megaprojects. Megaprojects are massive, billion dollar construction projects with a strange paradox; they are almost always over budget and over time, yet we still keep making them. Research into overconfidence helped explain the "winner's curse", where the firm that wins the bid to make these megaprojects is also typically the one who also overplaced their ability to stay under budget relative to their competitors. I am excited to continue research into overconfidence and am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with such amazing people at the Moore Accuracy Lab. I'm also a huge fan of cartoons, comics, and food. 

Mitchell James Wong

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I am a second year undergraduate student from San Francisco intending on majoring in Business Administration. I hope to translate a background in business to a career in corporate law. I am excited to learn and research more about overconfidence with the Moore Accuracy Lab. When I am not busy with school I am most likely practicing Kendo or playing games.
