Igor Grossmann is a world traveller. Born in the Soviet Union, and growing up in Ukraine and post-Berlin Wall Germany, he has seen first-hand the impact of complex systems on changes in people's beliefs and practices. His chief work concerns demystifying wisdom -- a “philosopher’s stone” in behavioural sciences. To this end, he uses innovative methods, including big data analytics, psychophysiology, diary surveys, and behavioural experiments. Igor Grossmann studied at the University of Freiburg, Germany, and at the University of Michigan, where he received his Ph.D. in Social Psychology in 2012. He is currently an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Waterloo. His work has been published in such top outlets as PNAS, Proceedings of the Royal Academy: Biological Sciences, Perspectives on Psychological Science, Psychological Science, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, or Journal of Experimental Psychology: General.
