Prof Ido Erev
Vice-Dean of MBA Program
Ido Erev joined the faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management in the Technion in 1990 after completing his doctorate in psychology at the University of North Carolina. He was made full professor in 2004, and has held the Women’s Division—ATS Academic Chair since 2006. He currently serves as co vice-dean for the Technion MBA programs, the head of the Behavioral Science Area, the head of the Technion section of the Max Wertheimer Minerva Center for Cognitive Research, and the head of the Technion group at I-CORE (the Israel Center of Research Excellence) for Empirical Studies of Decision Making and the Law.His visiting positions include visiting research associate in economics at the University of Pittsburgh, Michael A. Gould Fellow at Columbia Business School, Marvin Bower Fellow at Harvard Business School, fellow at the Israel Center of Advanced Studies, visiting professor at Erasmus School of Economics, visiting professor at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya, and “research environment” professor at Warwick Business School.Erev’s basic research examines the long-term impact of economic incentives on human behavior. His results suggest that incentives are most effective when the option that maximizes expected return also minimizes the probability of regret. When this condition does not hold, experience can reduce the impact of incentives, and lead people to behave “as if” they believe that “it won’t happen to me.” The main impact of incentives can be predicted by assuming a tendency to select the options that led to the best outcomes in small set of similar situations in the past. Erev’s applied research clarifies the implications of these observations to the design of incentive structures and technologies that facilitate social welfare. One example is the demonstration of the advantage of gentle rule enforcement of safety rules.
