BJ Fogg, PhD
Behavior Scientist, Stanford University
Dr. BJ Fogg teaches good people how behavior works so they can create products & services that benefit everyday people around the world.
He is a behavior scientist, with deep experience in innovation and teaching. At Stanford University he runs a research lab. He also teaches his models and methods in graduate seminars. On the industry side, Dr. Fogg-he goes by BJ- trains innovators to use his work so they can create solutions that influence behavior. The focus areas include health, financial well-being, learning, productivity, and more.
He wrote a seminal book, Persuasive Technology, about how computers can be designed to influence attitudes and behaviors. That book, together with his early innovations, inspired an annual global conference on the topic. His Stanford students have gone on to co-found Instagram, as well as launch a global movement focusing on “time well spent” and the Center for Humane Technology. Starting in 2010, BJ’s Stanford lab started shifting focus away from persuasive technology toward a new domain they named “Behavior Design,” a set of models and methods about human behavior (with nothing to do with technology.)
Fortune Magazine named BJ a "New Guru You Should Know" for his insights about mobile and social networks.
His TEDx talk “Forget big change, start with Tiny Habits” has over a million views.
He devotes about 50% of his time to Stanford and 50% to industry innovation. For BJ, working in both worlds makes sense: His Stanford work makes him better in industry. And what he learns in industry improves his Stanford research.

BJ has personally coached over 40,000 people in forming new habits, using his breakthrough method called “Tiny Habits.” His forthcoming book, Tiny Habits: The Small Changes that Change Everything , is scheduled for publication in early 2020 and is contracted to be published in over 12 languages.
BJ lives in Northern California and Maui. He loves to be on or near the water: surfing, paddleboarding, or just spending time in nature.
