Interdisciplinary Group in Behavioral Decision Making

The interdisciplinary research group in Behavioral Decision Making was formed in 2003. Our purpose is to draw together scholars with diverse disciplinary backgrounds and shared research interests in the behavioral analysis of judgment and decision making.

In so doing, we hope to foster greater communication and more frequent collaboration among participants. Toward that end, we sponsor a research seminar series that meets from 12:15-1:30pm on the second and fourth Fridays of each month during the academic year, promulgate a working paper series, and provide curriculum advice to doctoral students. We welcome participation from all interested faculty and students from UCLA and neighboring institutions.

Co-chairs: Shlomo Benartzi
, Craig Fox.
