Thomas Gilovich is Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychology at Cornell University and co-director of the Cornell Center for Behavioral Economics and Decision Research. He received his B.A. in Psychology in 1976 from the University of California and his PhD in Psychology in 1981 from Stanford University. Dr. Gilovich studies how people make judgments and decisions in their everyday and professional lives. He is most widely known for research that debunks the “hot hand” in basketball, that identifies what people regret most in life and why, and that examines the contaminating influence of egocentrism on everyday judgment.
He has written three books: How We Know What Isn’t So (1991), Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes (1999, with Gary Belsky), and Social Psychology (2005, with Dacher Keltner and Richard Nisbett). He also edited, with Dale Griffin and Daniel Kahneman, Heuristics and Biases: The Psychology of Intuitive Judgment. Dr. Gilovich was awarded the Stephen Russell Distinguished Teaching Award and was twice named Outstanding Educator for teaching statistics, judgment, and social psychology to undergraduate students at Cornell.
