In this talk you get insight into:

  • Science-based ways to create deeper and more meaningfulromantic relationships.

  • How to save a bad first date using “the peak-end rule.”

  • How to know when you've met the right person by applying “the secretary problem.”

  • And how to avoid the inevitable downward trajectory of long-term relationships using “the marriage hack.” 



Logan Ury is a 2018 TED Resident and the CEO/Founder of a new company that helps people create deeper and more meaningful relationships. She previously led the Irrational Lab, Google's behavioral economics team, and worked as a researcher at Airbnb. She created the popular Talks at Google: Modern Romance series in which she interviews renowned academics and authors like Dan Savage and Esther Perel to discuss topics like monogamy and marriage.

Action Design Miami is part of the Action Design Network, a nonprofit, 13-city (and growing) international network of curious professionals passionate about the application of behavioral science and design to the improvement of people's lives. The Miami chapter is led by Ezequiel Williams, Gabriel Roldan, and Melany Valderrama

Every month we explore ways to apply psychology to the design of products and services that help customers achieve their goals and have a better experience. Whether the goal is to help people save more money, get in shape, cut down on electricity usage, or learn a new language, our core pursuit is the same:

How can we use research in behavioral science to help users build habits and change their daily behavior?

Our explorations lie at the intersection of technology (UI / UX, data science), psychology (behavioral economics, positive psychology), and advocacy, and focus on exposing our members to cutting edge tools, research, and practitioners in each of these areas so they can apply the latest learning in action design in their respective fields.

This group is for designers, developers, entrepreneurs, economists, psychologists, marketers and others who are curious and passionate about helping people create positive change in their lives.
