Research interests

Professor Montibeller's main research interests are on the links between behavioural decision research and decision analytic modelling and on the formal conceptualisation of decision aiding practices. Two of his main areas of research-led applications are resource allocation against emerging threats, particularly health and terrorist ones, and multi-criteria health prioritisations.
