Prosocial researchers in The giving lab
Prof. Danit Ein-Gar
I am an associate professor at the Marketing Department at Coller School of Management, Tel-Aviv University and the head of Marketing department.
My primary research interest is how and why people give to others in need.
Giving may take many forms such as monetary donations, volunteerism, free knowledge sharing (i.e. advice giving) and emotional support etc.
I am interested in exploring the new platforms of giving in the modern-digital world (donation raising apps, donation-based crowdfunding, social network campaigns) and the unique psychological processes that play at heart when people need to decide whether to give and how much to give in these platforms.
Other research avenues I am interested in are; self-control, I have developed and validated a dispositional self-control measure temporal effects in consumer behavior and finally how situational and dispositional differences in information processing shape decisions.
I am fortunate to work and collaborate with wonderful research students and colleagues, in Israel, Europe, USA and Asia.
