Hadar Ram is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California (USC). Prior to that, she completed her Ph.D. in Social Psychology in the School of Psychological Sciences at Tel Aviv University. During her Ph.D. studies, she was a visiting student at NYU and at the Social Cognition Center in Cologne, Germany. Hadar’s research seeks to better understand the underlying mechanisms of human learning by focusing on a fundamental question: when people learn, what do they learn? More specifically, she takes a social-cognitive perspective on learning, examining how past experiences shape the way people perceive the world and behave. During her postdoc at USC, she uses those insights to investigate the micro-foundations of entrepreneurship, by studying the subtle signals and cues that impact the decision process of entrepreneurs and investors. She explores these topics using both lab experiments and field data. Hadar teaches Organizational Behavior and Leadership at USC and taught a broad range of courses at Tel Aviv University, where she received several Rector's Excellence Teaching Awards.
