Nadav Klein

Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour


Nadav is an Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD. His research focuses on the basic processes of judgment that affect how people make decisions, process information, and evaluate others and themselves. Some of the findings Nadav has explored are the surprising reputational benefits of being a little bit nice to other people, the ability of groups to detect lies, people's weak desire to be seen as moral and strong desire not to be seen as immoral, and people's overestimation of how much information they use to make decisions.

Nadav's work has been published in academic outlets such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and Journal of Experimental Psychology: General. His work has also been published and covered in practitioner and popular outlets such as Harvard Business Review, Scientific American, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Forbes, Business Insider, and Fortune.

Nadav comes to INSEAD from the University of Chicago, where he completed his Ph.D. at the Booth School of Business and his post-doctoral appointment at the Harris School of Public Policy. Before academia, Nadav was an economic consultant at Cornerstone Research and received his undergraduate degree from Amherst College. At INSEAD, Nadav teaches the OB1 core course.
