Robert Mislavsky is an Assistant Professor on the research track. He joined Carey in 2018. He primarily studies how people interpret probabilities and how this informs their preferences and decisions. For example, how confident is someone learns that there is a “60%” chance of success versus a “likely” chance? How does the context or timing of that prediction change how they interpret it? How do these factors influence how they judge the competence of people who make correct or incorrect predictions? In addition to these questions, he studies a variety of topics related to judgment and decision making, such as how people evaluate the ethics of corporate experiments, what influences donation decisions, and how to incentivize healthy habits.
