Acting Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior
Professor Halevy’s research focuses on conflict and cooperation within and between groups. He studies, for example, how individuals' motivated perceptions of conflict shape their decision making in strategic interactions, and how different organizational conditions, such as hierarchy and leadership, shape patterns of conflict and cooperation within and between groups.
Nir Halevy is an Acting Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University.
Professor Halevy’s research bridges the fields of social psychology, organizational behavior, judgment and decision making, and behavioral game theory. His research has investigated, for example, how conflict within teams affects between-team negotiation; how “in-group love” and “out-group hate” shape the course and outcomes of intergroup conflict; and how individuals’ mental models of conflict situations relate to their ideological beliefs and political behavior. His research has appeared in academic journals such as Psychological Science, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Personality and Social Psychology Review, and Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
Nir Halevy received his PhD in social psychology and organizational behavior from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
