Assistant Professor of Behavioural Science, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick

Suzy Moat is an Assistant Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School. Her work exploits data from sources such as Google, Wikipedia and Flickr, to investigate whether data from the Internet can help us measure and even predict human behaviour.

In recent studies, in collaboration with Tobias Preis, H. Eugene Stanley and colleagues, Moat has provided evidence that patterns in searches for financial information on Wikipedia and Google may have offered clues to subsequent stock market moves, and that Internet users from countries with a higher per capita GDP are more likely to search for information about years in the future than years in the past.
