Richard Yi analyzes the behavioral and economic approaches that lead to decision and behavioral processes in health. He looks at valuation, or the process of determining monetary worth, and dynamic inconsistency, when one’s decision-making becomes inconsistent, as factors in addiction and relapse. 
Yi is the director of the Cofrin Logan Center for Addiction Research and Treatment. The center focuses on research, training and outreach efforts to prevent and treat addiction. With the University of Kansas, it offers treatment programs, art-based therapy, and addiction-based clinical services.
