Craig Fox studies behavioral decision theory. Specifically, his research investigates how people make judgments and decisions under conditions of risk, uncertainty and ambiguity. He uses a combination of empirical methods including surveys, laboratory and field studies, and neuroimaging.

He is currently an associate editor of Management Science and serves on the editorial boards of Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Behavioral Decision Making, and Judgment and Decision Making.

In addition to his post at UCLA Anderson, Dr. Fox holds a joint appointment as professor of psychology at the University of California at Los Angeles. He joined the UCLA Anderson faculty in 2003 after more than six years on the faculty at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. He remains an adjunct faculty member at Duke.

Dr. Fox currently teaches Leadership Foundations and Managerial Decision Making at UCLA Anderson and has taught electives in negotiation and managerial improvisation, as well as Ph.D. seminars in decision making. Dr. Fox has also taught at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, Columbia Business School, and Stanford University.
