Kirsten I.M. Rohde is an endowed professor of Behavioural Economics with a focus on Intertemporal Choice. She has broad research interests in any topic involving behavioral economics, but mainly focuses on intertemporal choice, a field of decision theory which analyses the tradeoffs people make between the present and the future. She has been working on an often observed irrationality in such tradeoffs: procrastination. She has an interest in developing nudges to help people overcome such irrational behavior. She does both theoretical and experimental work. Other research areas of Kirsten Rohde include concerns for equality and social preferences, and decisions under risk.
