Narges Hajimoladarvish

Senior Researcher Fellow at Ashoka University


The workshop serves as an introduction to Behavioral Economics, concentrating on how people make decisions, especially in situations involving risk and uncertainty. We’ll begin by briefly exploring decision-making processes and some canonical biases. Subsequently, we’ll delve into the fundamental principles of Prospect Theory, exploring the complexities of how individuals assess and respond to risk. Throughout this exploration, you will gain insights into the psychological factors influencing choices.
