DEEP is an adaptive method that dynamically designs elicitation questions for estimating Risk and Time preference parameters. Typically these parameters are elicited by presenting decision makers with a series of static choices between alternatives, gambles or delayed payments. DEEP dynamically (i.e., adaptively) designs such choices to optimize the information provided by each choice, while leveraging the distribution of the parameters across decision makers (heterogeneity) and capturing response error. It also recovers true parameter values well under various circumstances.
DEEP is an inter-university collaboration between researchers from Columbia Business School, INSEAD, and George Washington University. Below you’ll find a list of all the authors by alphabetical order.
Professor Delquié is an Associate Professor of Decision Sciences at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. Professor Delquié has taught at École Normale Supérieure de Cachan in Paris, the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and the Graduate School of Business, the University of Texas at Austin. He taught at the Swiss Banking School, ENPC International School of Management and developed and taught specialized executive courses for the KPMG Executive MBA program and the Scandinavian International Management Institute.
