About the Center

Established with an anonymous gift in 2015, the Kahneman-Treisman Center for Behavioral Science & Public Policy, housed in the Woodrow Wilson School, honors the legacy of Daniel Kahneman and Anne Treisman and leverages the combined strengths of the Princeton University faculty across a range of disciplines.  The Center is the intellectual hub that supports and organizes new research projects, plans lecture series and conferences, disseminates research results, and connects Princeton researchers and students with policy makers and scholars from other institutions.
