German Loewe started his collaboration with the Managerial Decision Sciences department at IESE in 2009, and is now Lecturer of Decision Analysis in the MBA program. Before 2009 he held Associate Professor positions at both University of Barcelona and University Pompeu Fabra, where he taught mathematics, decision theory and strategy for several years. During 2000 he was visiting researcher at the Economic Learning and Social Evolution Centre (ELSE) at University College London and holds a PhD in Mathematical Economics from University of Barcelona.

He has worked for several years together with experimental psychologist and field specialist Daniel Read in experiments aimed at further exploring known anomalies in rational intertemporal decision making.
