About Daniel דניאל Kahneman כהנמן, Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, 2002

Daniel Kahneman דניאל כהנמן (born March 5, 1934) is an Israeli-American psychologist and Nobel laureate. He is notable for his work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making, behavioral economics and hedonic psychology.

With Amos Tversky and others, Kahneman established a cognitive basis for common human errors using heuristics and biases (Kahneman & Tversky, 1973; Kahneman, Slovic & Tversky, 1982; Tversky & Kahneman, 1974), and developed prospect theory (Kahneman & Tversky, 1979). He was awarded the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics for his work in prospect theory.

The Nobel Prize motivation: "for having integrated insights from psychological research into economic science, especially concerning human judgment and decision-making under uncertainty".

In 2011, he was named by Foreign Policy magazine to its list of top global thinkers.

Currently, he is professor emeritus of psychology and public affairs at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School. Kahneman is a founding partner of The Greatest Good, a business and philanthropy consulting company. Kahneman is married to Royal Society Fellow Anne Treisman.
