Join the Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Chicago for their annual capstone event featuring a panel of three Booth faculty discussing a broad array of research in behavioral science
Speakers include Nick Epley, John Templeton Keller Distinguished Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Faculty Director of the Chicago Booth Center for Decision Research; Emma Levine, Associate Professor of Behavioral Science and Charles E. Merrill Faculty Scholar; and Devin Pope, Steven G. Rothmeier Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics/Robert King Steel Faculty Fellow.
The panel of behavioral scientists will discuss new research findings, including broader implications and real-world applications. Widely recognized as leading scholars in their fields, all three professors are regularly featured in news outlets around the world. Professor Epley studies social cognition—how thinking people think about other thinking people—to understand why smart people so routinely misunderstand each other. Professor Levine studies the psychology of altruism, trust, and ethical dilemmas, elucidating how individuals make trade-offs between different values, and how this influences decision-making and social perception. Professor Pope is a behavioral economist whose research investigates the intersection of economics and psychology—primarily employing large observational data sets, and investigating how psychological biases play out in important economic markets.
After the panelists' discussion at the University Club, the event will move one block south to Chicago Booth's new interactive public space, Mindworks: The Science of Thinking. Mindworks is the world's first discovery center and working lab dedicated to behavioral science. Operated by Booth's Center for Decision Research, Mindworks welcomes visitors to explore its interactive exhibits and museum atmosphere, take part in engaging, hands-on research studies, earn prizes for participating, and apply insights from behavioral science to help understand and improve their lives and communities. In its first year alone, Mindworks welcomed 12,000 visitors from more than 50 countries—and is fast becoming one of Chicago's can't-miss cultural destinations.
