Ralph Hertwig studies human cognitive abilities, bringing together concepts and methods from psychology, neuroscience, economics, philosophy, biology, and mathematics. He investigates how biological cognitive strategies (heuristics) arise, perform, and vary under natural resource constraints. His work spans individual and group cognition.

At SCIoI Ralph works on Project 22, “Ecologically rational strategy selection”, and Project 26, “How Cognitive Mechanisms Shape Collective Dynamics”.
