Dr. Kahneman is a member of the National Academy of Science, the Philosophical Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a fellow of the American Psychological Association, the American Psychological Society, the Society of Experimental Psychologists, and the Econometric Society. In the early 1970s, in collaboration with his close colleague and friend, the late Amos Tversky, Danny conducted a series of studies on heuristics and biases in everyday intuitive judgment, and on decision making under risk and uncertainty. Biography. He received his bachelor’s degree in psychology and mathematics from Hebrew University, and his Ph.D. from the University of California–Berkeley in 1961. The results of this research are increasingly being used in policy-related research and applications. Helene E. WoodFaculty AssistantT. Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology; Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs, Emeritus. Danny’s distinguished scientific career has been marked by decades of interdisciplinary work that, while grounded in psychological science, has taken behavioral research in the social sciences to new heights and altered the ways in which we think about and understand human behavior. Danny’s research, which has covered a wide range of topics, is distinguished by his ability to draw out profound and compelling theoretical insights from new and existing evidence. He has been the recipient of many awards, among them the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award of the American Psychological Association (1982) and the Grawemeyer Prize (2002), both jointly with Amos Tversky, the Warren Medal of the Society of Experimental Psychologists (1995), the Hilgard Award for Career Contributions to General Psychology (1995), the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences (2002), the Lifetime Contribution Award of the American Psychological Association (2007), and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2013). Danny is an exemplary academic citizen. His work on judgment and decision making has had a profound impact on social scientists’ views of rationality, and on our understanding of the tensions that exist between theoretical models and empirical findings. As a member of the faculty of the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, he has taught numerous cohorts of students how insights from psychology can inform the analysis and implementation of public policy.

Dr. Kahneman is a member of the National Academy of Science, the Philosophical Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a fellow of the American Psychological Association, the American Psychological Society, the Society of Experimental Psychologists, and the Econometric Society. He has trained many excellent young psychologists over the course of his career. Danny received the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for “having integrated insights from psychological research into economic science, especially concerning human judgment and decision making under uncertainty.”. His early work was concerned with vision, specifically the causes and consequences of changes in pupil size, and with effort and attention, culminated in an influential book by that name.

(2011). This research has resulted in new methods of measuring “experienced utility”—affective states that are experienced as events occur—in contrast to “remembered utility.” The contrast between experienced and remembered utility provides insights into how individuals assess their past experiences and make decisions about the future.

Books and Edited Volumes Daniel Kahneman. That influence is especially evident in the field of economics, where it has produced some of the most frequently referenced publications in that fi including the single most cited publication in the prestigious journal Econometrica. Using simple and elegant experiments, they demonstrated that human judgments about uncertain events do not conform to the laws of probability, and that decisions that involve uncertain outcomes are often inconsistent with the theory of expected utility maximization. Prospect theory has two main components: first, individuals evaluate decisions relative to a reference point and treat losses as more aversive than the benefit of equivalent gains; second, individuals systematically distort probabilities.
