Born in India to British parents during World War II, he gained a PhD from the University of Chicago in 1972 and also became a U.S. citizen. He eventually became a member of faculty at the Graduate School of Business (now the Booth School) at the University of Chicago, after holding positions at INSEAD and the London Business School.

During his time on the faculty at Chicago (1979 to 2001) he served as Deputy Dean (1993 to 1998), Director of the Center for Decision Research (1983-1993) and Wallace W. Booth Professor of Behavioral Science. He was also responsible for setting up the University of Chicago’s executive MBA program in Europe.

His research focuses mainly on the psychology of judgment and decision making. He published several books and many papers and in 2007 was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Lausanne.

Today, he lives in Barcelona with his Catalan wife and struggles daily with both Spanish and Catalan. He enjoys visiting his three children and five grandchildren who all live in Northern California. British friends insist he has a US accent, Americans think he's English, and neither the Spanish nor the Catalans care in the slightest.
