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. Yet, I am still the least cited "Joshua Lewis" on Google Scholar.
A list of my papers is below.
My CV is available here.
