Hallgeir Sjåstad, Ph.D.

Thanks for stopping by!

I am a psychologist and researcher in the FAIR Insight Team at Norwegian School of Economics (SNF). I am broadly interested in human decision-making, social life, and how people deal with the future.

Most of my work is rooted in social psychology, but I also incorporate insights from judgment and decision-making, behavioral economics and evolutionary theory. It is the big questions that fascinates me, so I tend to care much more about good ideas and powerful methods than the specific boundaries between disciplines.

In my own research, I use experiments to study the psychology of planning and prediction, cooperation and morality, self-control and behavior change. My scientific ambition is to gain a better understanding of what we do to get along with each other, reach our personal goals, and strive for a better future.

I am a strong believer in "team science" and do most of my work in collaboration with terrific colleagues, mentors and friends. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have comments about my research or suggestions for future studies.
