Jeremy Yip is a Lecturer and Research Scholar at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He earned his Ph.D. from the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in psychology at Yale University.
Jeremy Yip's research explores the role of emotional intelligence in decision-making. For example, in one set of studies, he found that emotional intelligence improves decision-making by helping individuals discount the effect of incidental anxiety on decisions involving risk (Yip & Côté, 2013, Psychological Science). In a separate study, he found that emotionally intelligent individuals rely on their somatic markers, which signal relevant information about decision options and are assessed physiologically, enabling them to avoid disadvantageous decisions involving risk.
His other research investigates the influence of emotions on teamwork, negotiations, and morality.
