Prof. Krishna Savani is a Professor of Management at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. He has previously worked at Columbia University, National University of Singapore, and Nanyang Technological University. He has three inter-related programs of research.

His second program uses knowledge of people’s decision-making biases to counteract discrimination in employees’ hiring, evaluation, and promotion. His final program uses machine learning methods to generate novel hypotheses, which are subsequently tested with experiments.
