Background
Miguel Sousa Lobo


I am an assistant professor of decision sciences at INSEAD. I completed my graduate work at Stanford University, with a Ph.D. from the Information Systems Laboratory and an M.A. in Political Science, and have previously taught at the business schools of Duke and Columbia University. My research interests include dynamic decision problems with applications in pricing and finance, and Bayesian models for intraorganizational networks and interpersonal affect. Publications include:
• Human Judgment is Heavy-Tailed: Empirical Evidence and Implications for the Aggregation of Estimates and Forecasts, with D. Yao, Management Science (forthcoming)
• Optimal Portfolio Liquidation with Distress Risk, with D. Brown and B. Carlin, Management Science (2010)
