Lajos Kossuth, Ph.D.


Hi and welcome to my site! 

I am a behavioral economist with a keen interest in understanding decision-making processes, especially within natural environments, and their implications for public policy and development. To achieve this, my research combines applied and experimental economics methods with theoretical insights from the behavioral sciences. I am particularly interested in examining how various heuristics and cognitive biases shape decisions related to health and well-being.

I am currently working as a Post-doctoral Associate at MIT Sloan School of Management. If you wish to contact me, please send an e-mail to or
