ELKE WEBER is a professor of psychology and of management and human resources at the Ohio State University. Her work is at the intersection of psychology and economics and examines the influence of individual and cultural differences in perceptions and values on decision making. To this end, she uses an eclectic set of research methods that range from the experimentally informed axiomatic modeling of risk and risky choice to field studies. She has a Ph.D. from Harvard University, has taught in both psychology departments (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) and business schools (University of Chicago; Otto Beisheim School of Corporate Management, Germany), and spent a year at the Center for Advanced Studies in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. She is currently the president of the Society for Judgment and Decision Making and associate editor for the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. In addition, she serves on three other journal editorial boards, on the executive councils of the Decision Analysis Society and the Society for Mathematical Psychology, and on a MacArthur Foundation panel.
