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
I'm a recent Cal grad and the lab manager at the Moore Accuracy Lab. I've been working with the lab since Spring '16 and my ultimate goal is to pursue a doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology.  I'm intrigued by a range of research topics and am particularly interested in the intersection between overconfidence and performance outcomes; I'm thrilled to continue investigating these research questions with the Accuracy Lab. In my spare time, I like to bake pastries, and more frequently, consume large quantities of bread baked by others. 

 

Sydney Mayes

Research Assistant
I am a UC Berkeley graduate with a B.A. in Cognitive Science. I am interested in how people make decisions under uncertainty and am excited to be involved in the Accuracy Lab's research on forecasting. As someone with cross-disciplinary interests, I see forecasting as something that is relevant to all fields. If we can make more accurate predictions about future outcomes in any context, we can in turn make more informed, better decisions. 
Outside of the lab, I
​ ​
enjoy working in the food and beverage
​ world, hiking, running, picnicking, and homebrewing. I am excited to continue to contribute to research with the wonderful Accuracy Lab team and in the future I hope to find ways to better 
communicate important scientific 
​findings to the public.

 

Ekaterina Goncherova

Undergraduate Research Assistant
I am currently a senior at UC Berkeley, double majoring in Psychology and Cognitive Science. I am originally from St. Petersburg, Russia, but grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida. My interest in the intersectionality of psychology and economics comes from the polarized political views of the country where I grew up. In particular, I'm fascinated by decision making: how is it that some could rely on algorithms and some advice from their loved ones, and yet both be confident in their decisions? I believe examining decision making from a behavioral perspective is quintessential to understanding people, however, I am also interested in the neural processes behind decision making. This is exactly what I hope to study in graduate school, and I cannot imagine a better place to have been exploring-- and continue exploring-- this topic other 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'm a senior here at Cal. I'm from Irvine, California and transferred here in Fall 2017. I came across Don's research through one of the many economics podcasts I frequent; I was fascinated by how well overconfidence explains various phenomena in the world. Particularly, I found the phenomena of the "winner's curse" fascinating and well-explained by overconfidence, and suggest reading up on it! 

Mitchell James Wong

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I am a third year undergraduate studying Economics. I hope to pursue a degree in Law post-Berkeley and then transition that into a career as a lawyer--pending market demand and academic performance. I am excited to learn more about overconfidence while in the Moore Accuracy Lab. When I am not busy with school, you can find me practicing Kendo or stressing about school.

Maya Shen

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I am a second year undergraduate student intending to major in cognitive science. I am particularly interested in linguistics, artificial intelligence, and decision making. I was drawn to the Moore Accuracy Lab because of its interdisciplinary approach to studying overconfidence, a topic that has many possible implications for how we understand ourselves. I have always had an interest in interdisciplinary fields and hope to combine art and science in the future. In my free time, I enjoy drawing, hiking, and watching WWII documentaries.


Winnie Yan

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I just joined the Moore Accuracy Lab as an undergraduate research assistant. I'm a third-year Applied Math major at Cal, hoping to pursue a career in data science. I'm excited to learn about the effect of data posting and apply my skills in data analytics to research! You can usually find me struggling with a problem set in Moffit or running on a treadmill in the RSF. I really can't wait to spend a lot of time with the team and in Haas!
