Eugen Dimant

Associate Professor of Practice | Behavioral & Decision Sciences

Dr. Eugen Dimant is an Associate Professor of Practice in Behavioral & Decision Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. He is also a fellow in both the Behavioral and Decision Sciences Program and the Center for Social Norms and Behavioral Dynamics at the University of Pennsylvania, a collaborator at the Behavior Change for Good Initiative (BCFG) at Wharton & a Network Fellow at CESifo.  

He works primarily in the field of experimental behavioral economics, particularly focusing on behavioral ethics and behavior change. His recent research explores how social norms and nudges can impact our beliefs in ways that benefit us personally. This work also considers how these elements can influence the spread of both pro- and anti-social behavior within individual and group contexts, and how they can exacerbate societal polarization. Another area that he is actively exploring relates to the interplay between corruption, terrorism, and migration.
