Joe Dixon


My research and teaching takes a highly interdisciplinary approach to understanding the modern world. I am interested in the challenges of decision-making under uncertainty and the limits of scientific approaches to understanding social problems. I am also interested in debates around terrorism, religion, culture and cultural differences.
