Professor Taly Reich's research interests fall at the intersection of behavioral decision theory and social psychology. Within these general domains, a great deal of her work explores issues related to the value of unintentionality in consumer choice and the unorthodox choices that people make in the face of threats to their personal identity. In exploring these issues, she strives to answer both theoretical and practical questions, with a fundamental goal of advancing basic insight in consumer psychology and shedding light on strategic actions that can subsequently be generated. Taly Reich has published articles in leading journals such as Nature, Psychological Science, the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and the Journal of Consumer Research. Taly Reich holds a PhD in Marketing from Stanford Graduate School of Business and an M.Sc. in Industrial Psychology from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology.
