Desktop Diaries: Daniel Kahneman
Nobel Prize-winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman is the latest subject in our “Desktop Diaries” series, although he has no desk. Kahneman, professor emeritus at Princeton University, won the Nobel Prize in economic sciences in 2002 for his research with the late Amos Tversky on our sometimes-irrational intuitions and how they affect decision-making.
