Overview: 
A discussion and demonstration of the importance of understanding the underlying psychology of why biases occur and who is most susceptible to them if we are to develop decision processes that are robust to their effects.
Bio: 
Dr. Welsh has a PhD in psychology, on the structure and heritability of cognitive abilities. Since 2004, he has worked at ASPER, researching: how biases affect industry decisions; how to improve the elicitation of expert estimates; and the extent to which we can predict who will make the best decisions. In this time, he has worked on projects within the petroleum, health and defence industries. He has written over 50 papers on individual differences and decision making and published a book in 2018 entitled Bias in Science and Communication: a field guide. He is a current (2020-21) Society of Petroleum Engineers Distinguished Lecturer, speaking on how cognitive psychology can improve oil industry decisions.
