Cendri Hutcherson is the director of the Toronto Decision Neuroscience Laboratory and an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto with a cross-appointment to the Rotman School of Management.
She received degrees in psychology from Harvard (B.A.) and Stanford (Ph.D.), and worked as a post-doctoral scholar studying neuroeconomics at the California Institute of Technology. Her research program applies computational modeling to behavior, eye tracking, EEG, and fMRI data, with the goal of understanding how we make decisions and why we sometimes make decisions we later regret. Ultimately, she hopes to use this research to develop training programs that help people make better decisions for both themselves and others.
