Considered one of the world's leading experts on choice, Dr. Iyengar’s core research focuses on the psychology of choice and decision-making, addressing how humans face challenges in a world where they are inundated with options.

Her book, “The Art of Choosing,” explores topics such as, why choice is powerful and where its power comes from, the ways in which people make choices, and the relationship between how we choose and who we are.

When Dr. Iyengar was three years old, she was diagnosed with a rare form of retinitis pigmentosa, an inherited disease of retinal degeneration. By 6th grade, she had lost the ability to read, and by 11th grade, she had lost her sight entirely and could only perceive light.

She graduated from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and earned Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Stanford University and joined the Columbia faculty in 1998.
