Gilovich has collaborated with Daniel Kahneman, Richard Nisbett, Lee Ross and Amos Tversky. His articles in peer-reviewed journals on subjects such as cognitive biases have been widely cited. In addition, Gilovich has been quoted in the media on subjects ranging from the effect of purchases on happiness to perception of judgment in social situations.
Gilovich is a fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.
Lee David Ross (born 1942) is a professor of social psychology at Stanford University.
Ross is an influential social psychologist who has studied attribution theory, attributional biases, decision making and conflict resolution, often with longtime collaborator Mark Lepper.
Ross is known for his investigations of the fundamental attribution error, and for identifications and analyses of such psychological phenomena as attitude polarization, reactive devaluation, belief perseverance, the false consensus effect, naive realism, and the hostile media effect.
Instead of limiting his research to a laboratory, Ross had a wide variety of interest in global issues such as climate change and the legal system.
