Kirstin Appelt recently received her Ph.D. in Psychology from Columbia University. Her dissertation research (with Tory Higgins) investigated strategy in negotiations, particularly how different strategies fit different people. Kirstin recently completed post-doctoral research appointments with CRED and with the Center for Decision Sciences. With CRED, Kirstin pursued her research interests in temporal discounting, specifically investigating why people’s impatience differs for gains and losses depending on framing. In collaboration with Elke Weber, Michel Handgraaf, and Kerry Milch, Kirstin explored the topic of individual differences in decision research, leading to the creation of the Decision Making Individual Differences Inventory (DMIDI) which catalogues and describes over 170 individual difference measures commonly used in decision research. The DMIDI is now hosted by the Society for Judgment and Decision Making.
