Shereen Chaudhry

Assistant Professor of Behavioral Science

Shereen Chaudhry is a scholar of human judgment and decision-making (JDM), with education and research training at the intersection of psychology, economics, and neuroscience. Her research explores basic psychological questions by building on insights and using methodologies from multiple disciplines. Her deepest curiosity is regarding the origins and often-overlooked purpose of everyday observed behavior. In particular, she aims to better understand how responsibility attributions influence interpersonal impressions and conflict. Her research strives to examine the implications of these phenomena for organizations, specifically conflict management, workplace incivility, and negotiation. Chaudhry's research has been published in Psychological Review and Research in Experimental Economics.

Prior to joining Booth, Chaudhry was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Wharton Risk Management and Decision Processes Center. In her work at the Center, she focused on identifying risk communication strategies that are informed by the psychological processes behind the perception of risk, and that can help people make better decisions about protecting themselves against rare, but catastrophic events.

Chaudhry received a PhD in Behavioral Decision Research from the Department of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. Additionally, she earned a BS in Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT and a Master of Health Administration at Cornell University.
