Yuval Erez

PhD Candidate in Economics, Cornell University

Welcome to my website! I am a PhD candidate in the Economics Department at Cornell University, and a graduate researcher in Prof. Valerie Reyna's Laboratory for Rational Decision Making at the College of Human Ecology, Cornell University. My research interests include Judgment and Decision-Making, Behavioral Economics, and Decision Theory. In my job market paper I combine theoretical models from economics and psychology with a laboratory experiment to study the influence of hunger on risk attitudes and rational choice behavior.

In addition, I am an experienced lecturer at the undergraduate and graduate level in a number of economics courses, such as Principles of Economics, Intermediate Microeconomics, and Intermediate Macroeconomics. Due to my dedication and passionate approach to teaching, I was awarded twice the outstanding teaching award by Tel-Aviv University (2010-11, 2012-13).
