In this special seminar, Professor Bossaerts talk will tackle uncertainty, computational complexity, human decision-making and how ‘smart-drugs’ affect performance.
Peter Bossaerts is Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor and Professor of Experimental Finance and Decision Neuroscience at The University of Melbourne.
He pioneered the use of controlled experimentation (with human participants) in the study of financial markets. He also pioneered the use of decision and game theory in cognitive neuroscience, thereby helping establish the novel fields of neuroeconomics and decision neuroscience. Recently, he has started to use computer science to study human behavior under complexity.
He graduated with a PhD from UCLA and spent most of his career at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). He also worked at Carnegie Mellon University and EPFL (ETH-Lausanne), among others. He is Fellow of the Econometric Society, the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, and the Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory.
