Doron Sonsino has a Ph.D in business economics from Stanford University Graduate School of Business and holds an Ms.C in Operations Research (with excellence) from Tel-Aviv University Management School. Doron was a faculty member at the Israeli Technion and at the College of Management Academic Studies, and is currently affiliated with Ben-Gurion University Economics department. In his early career Doron worked as a financial journalist covering the Israeli Capital Markets. Doron’s main current research field is the financial decision of private investors. In recent projects, Doron and his co-authors use framed-field experiments and surveys to explore the financial decision of finance students and professionals. The data is analyzed in light of formal models of choice under uncertainty and hypotheses stemming from the finance and psychology of decision-making literatures. Doron’s recent projects particularly explore the valuation of retail-oriented structured investment instruments and issues related to forecast-confidence, overconfidence and trading propensity. Doron is an associate editor at the Journal of Behavioural and Experimental Economics.
