Bio: Ayelet Gneezy is an Associate Professor of Behavioral Sciences and Marketing at UCSD. Professor Gneezy received her Ph.D. from the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago.

In her research, professor Gneezy collaborates with small (e.g., wineries) and large (e.g. Disney) firms and integrates field experiments to test her predictions "in the wild". In recent years, Professor Gneezy shifted part of her focus to better understand, and improve, practices relating to social causes.
