Wendy Wood Biography

Wendy Wood is a behavioral scientist known for her award-winning research on behavior change, especially habits. Her prize-winning book, "Good Habits, Bad Habits," explains the science of habits and why we find them so hard to change.

She is currently president of the Association for Psychological Science and her highly cited research has received numerous recognitions. In the past, she has held positions of Distinguished Behavioral Scientist at the Sorbonne University and INSEAD, Helen Putnam Scholar at the Radcliffe Institute, and James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University.

Collaborations with industry partners include P&G, the CDC, the U.S. Paper & Packaging Board, and the World Bank. Her work is often featured in popular news outlets including NPR, New York Times, Washington Post, and the Wall Street Journal.

Speaking Topics
  • Changing Habits is Not What You Think

    All of us have wondered at some point why we can’t seem to change an unwanted behavior, whether it’s overeating, spending too much money, avoiding work, or just getting into the same old fights with our partner. Despite compelling reasons to make the change and a concerted effort, it just didn’t happen. Any success was short lived, and we fell back into old unwanted habits. In this talk, Dr. Wood will explain the latest research on how to actually change our unwanted habits and, most importantly, to make that change stick. She will help identify common misconceptions about changing habits, including an emphasis on self-control and willpower. Instead, she will share new, more effective ways to tackle the unwanted behavior patterns that develop in our lives.
