Gerd Gigerenzer is one of the leading scholars on the topic of decision-making, and his work has had a strong influence on how individuals and researchers think about making choices in domains such as health care, public policy, law and economics. He has constructed probabilistic models of human decision-making, exploring how we are able to make good decisions despite being immersed in uncertainty. Gigerenzer argues that simple heuristics can often do a very good job of steering people toward good decisions when used in appropriate settings.
