  • Zoom Meeting


  • Any staff member of a LILRC Institutional Member or a LILRC Retired Member

Join LILRC in welcoming Eric J. Johnson, Director of Columbia Business School’s Center for Decision Sciences, who will speak on the inner workings of how decisions are made and explain how we can design better end-to-end decision-making processes.

Going well beyond the familiar concepts of nudges and defaults, Johnson offers a comprehensive, systematic guide to creating effective choice architectures, the environments in which decisions are made. Johnson is the lead researcher behind some of the most well-known and cited research on decision-making. He draws on his original studies and meta-analyses of decision-building findings to reveal how the structure of choices affects outcomes.


Eric J. Johnson is Norman Eig Professor of Business, and Director of the Center for Decision Sciences at the Columbia Business School. He has been the President of the Society for Judgment and Decision-Making and the Society for Neuroeconomics. His academic awards include the Distinguished Scientific Achievement Award of the Society for Consumer Psychology, Fellow of the Association of Consumer Research, and an honorary doctorate in behavioral economics from the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland.
