Gilad Feldman, actuellement assistant professor en psychologie sociale à l’Université de Hong Kong, présentera ses travaux à l'occasion de ce séminaire. L'originalité de son approche réside dans l'application des nouvelles pratiques de recherche à l’étude des effets dits « classiques » dans le domaine du jugement et de la prise de décision.

Making sense of biases in judgment and decision-making: Leveraging change towards open-science to gain new insights regarding classic findings":

"Reproducibility and replicability are at heart of science, yet increasing evidence from recent years suggests that many of the findings in psychological science are irreproducible and non-replicable in what some termed as a "replication crisis" and a new movement calling for significant changes in the way we do science. Is there a crisis? Should this affect our research agenda? If so – how?

In this talk I will discuss my own journey in the last two years to shift the focus of my research to judgment and decision-making and endorse open-science practices and agenda, aiming to increase trustworthiness and reliability of my research. I will cover some of my latest projects on biases and heuristics, involving mass pre-registered replications, several pre-registered meta-analyses, and projects that aim to map, differentiate, and integrate seemingly separate or unrelated biases, mainly in the domains of the action-effect (Kahneman & Tversky, 1982) and norm theory (Kahneman & Miller, 1986). Put together, I hope these will serve as building blocks in reaching an overarching map and a deeper understanding of the (boundedly) irrational mind regarding action, agency, and norms.


Gilad is an assistant professor with the psychology department at the University of Hong Kong. Gilad's work is in the areas of social-cognitive psychology and behavioral decision-making. Research focuses on the topics of biases and heuristics regarding agency and action, lay-beliefs, unethical behavior and morality, and personal values. In recent years, with the emergence of the so-called "replication crisis", Gilad has taken a special interest in the movement for advancing psychological science by giving workshops and seminars and guiding researchers and students about open-science, statistical tools and simulations using open-source software (R), meta-analyses, pre-registrations, replications, and reproducibility.
