Nathaniel Daw

About himself: i study how people and animals learn from trial and error (and from rewards and punishments) to make decisions, combining computational, neural, and behavioral perspectives. I focus on understanding how subjects cope with computationally demanding decision situations, notably choice under uncertainty and in tasks (such as mazes or chess) requiring many decisions to be made sequentially. In engineering, these are the key problems motivating reinforcement learning and Bayesian decision theory. I am particularly interested in using these computational frameworks as a basis for analyzing and understanding biological...

Frank Dobbin

Received his B.A. from Oberlin College in 1980 and his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1987. Dobbin studies organizations, inequality, economic behavior, and public policy. His Inventing Equal Opportunity (Princeton 2009) shows how corporate personnel managers defined what it meant to discriminate. With Alexandra Kalev, he is developing an evidence-based approach to diversity management. Innovations that make managers part of the solution, such as mentoring programs, diversity taskforces, and special recruitment programs, have helped to promote diversity in firms, while programs signaling that managers are part of the problem...

Charles Efferson

About himself: I am an evolutionary ecologist who typically studies humans. Much of my research uses economic experiments to study behavioral dynamics associated with the social transmission of information. Current topics of interest include intergroup processes, conformity and non-conformity, religion and prosociality, and the endogenous evolution of beliefs, social norms, and preferences. Every fall semester, I teach a Master's level class on the psychological and biological foundations of economic behavior. I also supervise Bachelor's, Master's, and Ph.D. theses related to cultural transmission...

Paul Ekman

American psychologist who was a pioneer in the study of emotions and their relation to facial expressions, has created an 'atlas of emotions' with more than ten thousand facial expressions, and has gained a reputation as "the best human lie detector in the world". He was ranked 59th out of the 100 most cited psychologists of the twentieth century. Ekman conducted seminal research on the specific biological correlates of specific emotions, demonstrating the universality and discreteness of emotions in a Darwinian approach.] Ekman's biggest discovery is the 'micro-expression', which shows up on our faces for fractions of a second as an indicator of emotion.

Christian Ewerhart

Specializes in the role of liquidity in today's markets introducing insights into market behavior through the study of game theory. In 1997, Professor Ewerhart received his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Bonn within the framework of the European Doctoral Program. Subsequently, he worked in the private sector, first for the Boston Consulting Group as a management consultant to financial firms, and later heading the strategic controlling unit at Deutsche Börse Group. During 2000-2003, Christian Ewerhart held research positions at the University of Mannheim, the European Central Bank, and the University of Bonn.

Armin Falk

His research interests include microeconomics, behavioral economics, and neuroeconomics. He has published in renowned journals like the American Economic Review, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Econometrica, and Science . In the German Handelsblatt ranking of 2010, which analyzes current research output of economists in Germany, Austria, and German speaking Switzerland in terms of quality of publications since 2005, Falk reached the 8th place. In a broad sense, Falk's research is about obtaining a better empirical foundation of economic behavior. While the traditional economic model of individual behavior postulates perfect rationality and...
