Dr Grace Lordan is an associate professor in behavioural science at the London School of Economics. She is an economist by background, and her research is focused on understanding occupational sorting and has expertise on the effects of unconscious bias, discrimination and technology changes.
Grace is also interested in using the techniques of behavioural science to design interventions for firms to promote good conduct, diversity and inclusion and curb biases that creep into high stakes decision-making. In this respect, Grace is focused on helping firms understand ‘what works’ at a local level so that they are certain they are rolling out interventions that have a positive net present value. Grace has advised and given talks to large investment banks and international conferences on these topics. Grace has also led projects to advise commissioners in the UK and policymakers in the EC.
At LSE, Grace is the director of the MSc in behavioural science and teaches Corporate Behaviour and Decision making.
