After completing studies in mathematics, logic and philosophy, for the last few years Brian Hill has been working mainly in the field of decision theory.


After a period as Assistant Professor at HEC, he is now a CNRS research fellow attached to the GREGHEC laboratory and Affliliate Professor at HEC, where he teaches courses on decision theory, logic and philosophy. In logic and philosophy, he has worked on conditionals, on the dynamics of belief and preference, on awareness, on induction and on vagueness; in decision theory, his interests have included the relationship between decision making and changes in attitudes (beliefs and preferences), the role of conditionals in decision and state-dependent utilities. Much of his current research focuses on issues pertaining to the treatment and consequences of uncertainty in decision making, and in particular on the role of confidence and the analysis of indecisiveness.
