Nick is a Professor of Behavioral Science at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business. Before moving to the University of Chicago GSB, he was an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at Harvard University. His current research interests are primarily focused on mind-reading—how, and how well, people can intuit others’ thoughts, feelings, and internal mental states, ranging from inferences made about other humans, non-human animals, as well as religious agents. His research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the Templeton Foundation, and has been published in psychology, management, decision-making, and behavioral economics journals. He received his B.A. from St. Olaf College in 1996, and his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 2001.
