Prior to Haas, Don served on the faculty at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business, where he held the Carnegie Bosch chair. His research interests focus on overconfidence, including when people think they’re better than they are, when they think they are better than others, and when they are too sure they know the truth.

His research has appeared in numerous press outlets and academic journals, including Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Organization Science, Experimental Economics, and the Psychological Review.

Professor Moore teaches popular classes on managing organizations, negotiation and decision making. Don graduated with a BA in Psychology from Carleton College and received his MS and PhD degrees in Organizational Behavior from Northwestern University.
