This dissertation comprises three essays that explore decision-making under risk and ambiguity. The first essay extends Wang and Li's work on comparative ambiguity aversion to a generalized context, revealing its applicability to fundamental economic problems. The second essay highlights the significance of higher-order bivariate preferences in determining optimal screening test schedules. The last essay develops measures for three types of risk, derives duality axioms that describe comparative risk attitudes and choices between risks, and discusses their implications in a one-period self-protection model.
