Julian Marewski is Full Professor at at HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne. His research – which has both a basic and an applied focus – is interdisciplinary, drawing from and touching upon Cognitive Psychology, Computer Science, Statistics and Biology. His line of work focuses on how, when, and why different judgment strategies can aid making clever decisions in different domains, including in business and other settings. A central theme of his work is how the environment (i.e., context) is key to performance and behavior. In addition, Marewski’s main interests are analytic and intuitive decision processes, human rationality, and cognitive capacities essential for decision making, most notably human memory.
He is also interested in big data, digitalization, governance, privacy issues, and the design of robust (resilient) organizations and institutions as well as in unethical decision making processes.
