“Logan Ury brings a fresh and youthful perspective to the study of dating, mating and behavioral psychology.” -- Esther Perel, author of the best-selling books Mating in Captivity and The State of Affairs
I am a 2018 TED Resident, behavioral economics researcher, and dating coach. I'm currently writing a book with Simon & Schuster on how to make better decisions in romantic relationships.
My coaching style applies insights from behavioral economics to romantic relationships to help people find and build fulfilling partnerships.
I also guide clients through critical decision-making points in their relationships, including potential breakups.
I formerly ran the Irrational Lab, Google’s behavioral economics team, alongside Dan Ariely, author of Predictably Irrational.
I work with Mating in Captivity author Esther Perel on a variety of projects. I also collaborate with relationship scientist Dr. John Gottman and The Gottman Institute on articles and a video series. (The Emotional Bank Account and The Easiest Way to Improve Your Relationship.)
I started the Talks at Google: Modern Romance series, where I interviewed world-renowned dating and relationship experts. I discussed monogamy and marriage with Dan Savage and Esther Perel and the secrets to a happy marriage with Drs. John and Julie Gottman.
I’ve written about dating and relationships for TIME, Thrive Global, PopSugar, The Forward, P.S. I Love You, and more. I was featured on several recent episodes of HBO’s VICE News Tonight about the #MeToo movement.
My TED talk, Designing For Love, will be posted in Fall 2018.
