We are delighted to invite you to the next event in the Christ's College Webinar Series on 25 February 2021 at 6pm GMT. The topic of discussion will be ‘Human nature, overconfidence and rank in the workplace: when psychology meets economics’.The presenter will be Dr Julia Shvets who is a Senior Lecturer and Fellow in Economics at Christ’s College.  Julia analyses data on people's decisions to understand better what drives and influences human beings.  Some of Julia’s recent research was featured in a Freakonomics podcast episode ‘How to change your mind’.  


Julia will talk about the marriage between economics and psychology, her research into behaviour of store managers, and what happens when you let a group of academic economists loose in a large firm.
