Aleksey Korniychuk is a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Strategy and Business Policy at HEC Paris. He works in the domain of behavioral strategy and the two main themes that guide his analyses are (i) spontaneous, intuitive thinking and (ii) misperception of reality. He integrates these elements of human cognition with the process of organizational search and studies the effects of the associated biases. His dissertation includes three essays. The first essay traces the effects of intuitive, affective preferences over time, in the process of organizational adaptation; the second analyzes the implications of misperceiving business complexity for the attainment of organizational aspirations; and the third essay empirically tests a corollary from this analysis.
