Daniel Kahneman is the winner of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his pioneering work, with Amos Tversky, integrating insights from psychological research into economic science, especially concerning human judgment and decision-making under uncertainty. Kahneman is the author of Thinking Fast and Slow, and the coauthor of several academic works, including ‚ÄúHeuristics and Biases: The Psychology of Intuitive Judgment‚ÄĚ; ‚ÄúChoices, Values, and Frames‚ÄĚ; ‚ÄúJudgment under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases‚ÄĚ; ‚ÄúInternational Differences in Well-Being‚ÄĚ; and ‚ÄúWell-Being: The Foundations of Hedonic Psychology.‚ÄĚ

Kahneman was born in Tel Aviv but spent his childhood years in Paris, France, before returning to the Middle East in 1946. He received his bachelors degree in psychology (with a minor in mathematics) from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and in 1954 he was drafted into the Israeli Defense Forces, serving principally in its psychology branch. In 1958 he came to the United States and in 1961, earned his Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley.

Kahneman is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences. He is a fellow of the American Psychological Association, the American Psychological Society, the Society of Experimental Psychologists, and the Econometric Society. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, among them the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award of the American Psychological Association, the Warren Medal of the Society of Experimental Psychologists, and Hilgard Award for Career Contributions to General Psychology, and the Award for Lifetime Contributions to Psychology from the American Psychological Association (2007).
