Aurélien Baillon is a professor at EMLYON business school and research associate at GATE lab. In his research, he explores how people make decisions, and specifically what they believe, whether they trust what they believe, and whether we can trust what they say they believe.Much of his research is about ambiguity: how people deal with situations in which risks are not objectively quantifiable. This involves measuring beliefs and the extent to which beliefs influence decisions, i.e. attitudes of ambiguity. His research is interdisciplinary, using methods from economics, decision theory and psychology. Many projects involve experiments, both in the laboratory and in the field.
