Work Experience

Florian Federspiel is an Assistant Professor at INCAE Business School, specializing in Managerial Decision Sciences. Prior to joining INCAE Business School, he was a Visiting Scholar at Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business Operations and Information Management Group, as well as Adjunct Professor in the Operations & Technology area at IE Business School in Spain. He focuses his teaching on the decision sciences and quantitative methods for business, with the aim being to enable a critical approach to effective data-based decisions. Closely related to his teaching, his research is broadly driven by the interplay of how decisions #1 are actually made in practice (based on insights from cognitive and social psychology), versus #2 how they assumedly ought to be made (based on analytical models), #3 and how we can remove possible discrepancies. As such, his research combines both descriptive and normative aspects of decision-making in order to find prescriptive solutions, enabling managers to make better decisions. He is an active member of the Decision Analysis Society of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS) as well as editor of the Ask DAS column of Decision Analysis Today.
