Robert Mislavsky

Assistant Professor of Marketing - Johns Hopkins University


I am an assistant professor of marketing at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, where I teach Marketing Research in the MBA and MS Marketing programs. Prior to joining Carey, I received my PhD in decision processes from the University of Pennsylvania and my MBA from Carnegie Mellon University.
My research focuses on how we navigate uncertainty. I primarily study how we interpret probabilities and how this informs our preferences and decisions. For example, how confident are we if someone tells us that there is a “60%” chance of success versus a “likely” chance? How does the context or timing of that prediction change how we interpret it? How do these factors influence how we judge the competence of people who make correct or incorrect predictions?
In addition to these questions, I study a variety of topics related to judgment and decision making and behavioral theories of cryptocurrency token economics (or "tokenomics").
