Daniel Kahneman's Biography

Daniel Kahneman is an Israeli-American psychologist and notable keynote speaker.  Daniel is best known for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision making, as well as behavioral economics. For his prestigious works regarding behavioral economics, he was awarded the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. Kahneman earned his bachelor of science degree with a major in psychology and a minor in mathematics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1954. Afterwards, he served in the psychology department of the Israeli Defense Forces, taking on the responsibility of the evaluation of officer training school candidates by creating and developing tests and requirements specifically for that purpose. Daniel later moved to the United States of America to earn his PhD in psychology from the University of California Berkeley.

Kahneman began his professional academic career as a lecturer in psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1961, and was then later promoted to senior lecturer in 1966. From there, he had publications in prestigious science related journals, among them being his article “Pupil Diameter and Load on Memory” (1966). He is now a Senior Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He is also Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs Emeritus at the Woodrow Wilson School, the Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology Emeritus at Princeton University, and a fellow of the Center for Rationality at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 2002 for his pioneering work integrating insights from psychological research into economic science, especially concerning human judgment and decision-making under uncertainty.
