Visiting Faculty Fellow Research Talks
These events showcase the cutting-edge research of the Kilts Center’s visiting faculty fellows. In line with our integrative, multidisciplinary approach to marketing, we invite fellows from a wide range of fields, including behavioral science, economics, and cognitive psychology. Past talks have covered the evolution of consumer expertise, the emergence and impact of e-commerce, and the intersection of quantitative marketing and empirical industrial organization.
Visiting Faculty Fellow Research Talks offer faculty and PhD students a first look at what top researchers are working on, new insights they can apply to their own work, and a chance to pose their marketing and research questions to experts in the field. The event is also an excellent opportunity to network with fellow researchers for future collaborative projects.

Experts in their fields, visiting fellows come to Chicago Booth from institutions around the world, including Columbia University, Stanford University, the University of Toronto, the University of New South Wales, and ESADE in Barcelona, Spain.

Ben Newell is Professor of Cognitive Psychology and Deputy Head of the School of Psychology at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. His research focuses on the cognitive processes underlying judgment, choice and decision making and the application of this knowledge to environmental, medical, financial and forensic contexts. He has published over 100 journal articles and book chapters and is the primary author of the leading text, Straight Choices: The psychology of decision making - a book described by Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman as “a rare combination - an enjoyable read that beginners will like and a serious text that scholars will study”.

His work adopts experimental and computational methods to assess how people make decisions, and casts a critical eye on bold claims about the powers of the unconscious. His work has been discussed in various media outlets including TIME Magazine, The Guardian, BBC, ABC and WIRED Magazine. Ben writes regularly for the on-line newspaper The Conversation on topics including risk-taking, ‘nudging’ behaviour, intuition, and the psychology of climate change.
