Paul Johnson is Carlson professor of Decision Sciences and adjunct professor of Psychology, Computer Science, and Health Informatics. He is a member of the Cognitive Sciences Center as well as the Center for Political Psychology. His research focuses on the study of expertise in complex problem solving and decision-making tasks, decision failures that arise from the misperception or misrepresentation of information (e.g., deception), and the use of knowledge resources and decision technologies in professional and technical work. Professor Johnson and his students have investigated decision-making activities of individuals and organizations in a variety of settings, including health care (diagnosis and best practice in the management of chronic diseases), auditing (fraud detection), semiconductor manufacturing (troubleshooting), software engineering (maintenance), and foreign-exchange trading. Professor Johnson's teaching interests include cognitive science, intelligent systems, knowledge management, and managerial decision-making.
