We have published a timely Scholar Feature about former Family Research Scholar Jeffrey Starns!

"Dr Jeffrey Starns is helping people make good decisions in the face of uncertainty. Given all we are facing in the world these days with the COVID-19 pandemic, this research seems especially relevant. 'Probability is a mental tool for dealing with uncertainty,' he says. 'It is a way to think about what is likely to be true when you have only partial information, and a way to decide what is the best thing to do when you don’t know exactly what is going to happen. People deal with uncertainty every day, and we are trying to develop ways to teach probability concepts that help people recognize the relevance to their everyday life and apply the concepts intuitively.'"

We have published a new Scholar Highlight about former Family Research Scholar, Jamie Rowen.

"In the criminal justice world, veterans are a uniquely sympathetic population. 'We end up thinking about veteran trauma differently than we think about the trauma of growing up in the inner cities,' says Dr. Jamie Rowen. How do courts conceptualize war? Is it traumatic? Is it noble? Can it be both?"
