I am an Assistant Professor of Marketing at New York University.
I research effective altruism (see here for a short intro to effective altruism and here for my research on it) and decision-making biases.
In 2019, my work on decision making won the Society for Judgment and Decision Making's Hillel Einhorn New Investigator Award. In 2020, it won the Association for Consumer Research's Franco Nicosia Award for the Best Competitive Paper. Yet, I am still the least cited "Joshua Lewis" on Google Scholar.
A list of my papers is below.
My CV is available here.
