Adam Altmejd

I'm Adam, a fifth-year PhD Student at the Department of Economics at Stockholm School of Economics, focusing on Behavioral Economics using both empirical and experimental data. Last year, I visited the Department of Economics at Harvard University, invited by Professor David Laibson.

I am interested in how our behavior affects society at large - the macroeconomic consequences of humanity's limited cognitive abilities. Among other things, I study the role of peer influence on decision making, even in high stakes settings, and research how people form biased beliefs.

Moreover, I strongly believe that social sciences need to become more open and accessible, which is why I am a BITSS Catalyst. and partake in several replication efforts.
