Dr. Erica Fortune earned her Ph.D. from the University of Georgia in 2013. Her broad area of research in Psychology focuses on judgment and decision making, with a special concentration on gambling behaviors. Specific interests within this field include both exogenous and endogenous risk factors for gambling behaviors, such as applicable personality traits, related cognitive processes, and social influences, as well as the identification of the most appropriate instruments for assessing gambling-related variables. These research interests have been investigated in community samples in addition to undergraduate research pools and offer promising new research avenues as the category of Gambling Disorders finds its new place in the DSM-5, among Substance-Related and Addictive Disorders.
