The Department of Psychology, SRM University – AP, organizes a Psychology for All: Lecture Series to introduce us to the nuances of human psychology.

Digital technologies are being largely used in our private and professional lives and we are forced to make decisions based on the choices available on our screens. Digital nudging is defined as the use of user-interface design elements to guide people’s behaviour in digital choice environments. Dr Mukherjee studies cognition with a major focus on human judgment and decision making. His current work focuses on how humans perceive, judge, and decide within the realms of interactions with digital technology and algorithms. He also attends to consulting and collaborative queries related to consumer research on (digital) technology interactions, usage and adoption.

All are invited to this awareness-building lecture that would help in making informed and rational decisions in digital choice environments.
