2023 Keynote: Leidy Klotz

Leidy Klotz is a professor at the University of Virginia, where he is appointed in the Schools of Engineering, Architecture, and Business. He founded and directs the university’s Convergent Behavioral Science Initiative, which engages and supports applied, interdisciplinary research.

Through years of pioneering research at the intersection of design and behavioral science, Klotz has pinpointed how and why we overlook a fundamental approach to problem-solving: Subtraction. Whether we’re tackling our to-do lists, revising an e-mail, planning a city center, or thinking about climate change, our brains are wired to add instead of taking away. Read more about Klotz.
