Alex Markle joined the Gabelli School of Business in 2012 as an assistant professor of management systems. He conducts research on judgment and decision-making, bringing together insights from economics and psychology to better understand how individuals make decisions, why their decision-making processes often deviate from rational standards, and what strategic implications their decision-making errors and biases may have. His work has been published in Management Science and the Strategic Management Journal.

Prior to joining Fordham, Dr. Markle spent three years as an assistant professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. From 2007 to 2009, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at New York University's Stern School of Business. He earned his PhD in managerial and organizational behavior from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and his BS in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.
