About the Author
Tobias Baer is a data scientist, psychologist, and top management consultant with over 20 years of experience in risk analytics. Until June 2018, he was Master Expert and Partner at McKinsey & Co., Inc., where he built McKinsey's Risk Advanced Analytics Center of Competence in India in 2004, led the Credit Risk Advanced Analytics Service Line globally, and served clients in over 50 countries on topics such as the development of analytical decision models for credit underwriting, insurance pricing, and tax enforcement, as well as debiasing decisions. Tobias has been pursuing a research agenda around analytics and decision making both at McKinsey (e.g., on debiasing judgmental decisions and on leveraging machine learning to develop highly transparent predictive models) and at University of Cambridge, UK (e.g., the effect of mental fatigue on decision bias).

Tobias holds a PhD in finance from University of Frankfurt, an MPhil in psychology from University of Cambridge, an MA in economics from UWM, and has done undergraduate studies in business administration and law at University of Giessen. He started publishing as a teenager, writing about programming tricks for the Commodore C64 home computer in a German software magazine, and now blogs regularly on his LinkedIn page.
