Dr. Laurie Santos, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, Yale University; Director, Yale’s Comparative Cognition Laboratory
Santos, who has been called “the Monkey Whisperer,” studies the roots of human irrationality by watching the way our primate relatives make decisions. She’ll discuss her recent work on "monkey economics" and will show that some of the silly financial choices seen in humans can be observed in monkeys too.
