Michal Kosinski's Biography

Michal Kosinski, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, where he engages in groundbreaking research on the implications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within societal and organizational structures.

Kosinski co-authored the popular textbook Modern Psychometrics and has published more than 90 peer-reviewed papers in esteemed journals, such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), Nature Scientific Reports, Psychological Science, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology (JPSP), and Machine Learning. These works have garnered over 18,000 citations, placing him among the Top 1% of Highly Cited Researchers, as recognized by Clarivate. His research has had a broad societal impact, inspiring a cover of The Economist, a 2014 theater production called “Privacy,” multiple TED talks, a video game, and extensive coverage in media outlets, books, podcasts, and documentaries. He received a Rising Star award from the Association of Psychological Science in 2015 and an Early Achievement Award from the European Association of Personality Psychology in 2023.

Kosinski was the driving force behind the first press article that warned about the risks associated with Cambridge Analytica. His research explored the privacy issues they capitalized on and assessed the effectiveness of their strategies. His role in this matter has been detailed in Steven Levy’s book Facebook: The Inside Story and in Sander van der Linden’s article Weapons of Mass Persuasion.

He earned his Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Cambridge and holds master’s degrees in both psychometrics and social psychology. Before joining Stanford, Kosinski was a post-doctoral scholar in Stanford’s Computer Science Department, the Deputy Director of the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre, and a researcher in Microsoft Research’s Machine Learning Group.
