Experimental Trust Studies


3 p.m. May 3, 2021



The Center for Trust Studies (CTS) in the Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona will host its second panel discussion on May 3 at 3 p.m. MST.

The focal topic of the panel discussion will be the experimental study of trust—in both academia and business practice. Three distinguished panelists will start the session with brief presentations addressing issues related trust repair experiments, behavioral trust experiments , and online field experiments on trust. Following the presentation, there will be an interactive discussion with session participants. Registration is required (registration link below).

“Among the various empirical approaches to the study of trust, experiments have a long tradition and are one of the main go-to methods for trust researchers,” says Oliver Schilke, associate professor of management and organizations in the Eller College and CTS director. “Both academics and practitioners make frequent use of experiments in their study of trust, and they can learn a lot from one another.”

The event panelists include:

  • Cecily Cooper, associate professor of management in the Miami Herbert Business School at the University of Miami
  • Kevin McCabe, professor of economics, law and neuroscience and director of the Center for the Study of Neuroeconomics at George Mason University
  • Paolo Parigi, research manager at Facebook, former lead trust scientist at AirBnB and data scientist at Uber

Oliver Schilke will moderate the session. Supported by the National Science Foundation, the Center of Trust Studies hosts a series of workshops on trust in organizations, develops teaching tools on trust, and gets students from a variety of diverse backgrounds actively engaged in trust research.
