Researching decision-making in social contexts

Dr. Shoham Choshen-Hillel is an expert in judgment and decision-making. She joined the Hebrew University’s Jerusalem School of Business Administration in 2015, following a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, as a Rothschild Fellow.

Dr. Choshen-Hillel’s research focuses on decision making by individuals in social contexts. Drawing on methods from judgment and decision making and social psychology, she provides novel perspectives on social processes, with important implications not only for psychology, but also for public policy, behavioral economics, law, management and behavioral organization. Soon after joining HU’s faculty, Dr. Choshen-Hillel states that she felt “at home.”
