Brian Wansink

Dr. Brian Wansink  is Cornell University’s John S. Dyson Professor of Marketing, Director of the Food and Brand Lab and Co-Director of the Center for Behavioral Economics in Child Nutrition Programs.  He is best known for his work on consumer behavior and food; his research has focused on how micro-environments influence what and how much people eat and how much they enjoy it. He will talk to us about mindless eating (something that most of us are guilty of!) and how we can make changes in our lives to control it.

Brian is the author of more than 100 academic articles, and his newest book is Slim by Design: Mindless Eating Solutions for Everyday Life.  His other books include Marketing Nutrition and his best-selling book Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think.
