Key Research Interests
My general research interests are game theory, experimental economics and behavioural economics. I use game-theoretic and experimental research methods to analyze bargaining and co-ordination situations, strategic moves, focal points, and monetary reward systems and incentives. See my personal web page for more details.
I am happy to supervise students on novel and interesting topics within experimental and behavioural economics, and within economic theory. Feel free to get in touch with me.
I currently lecture on Behavioural and Experimental Economics II, and on Behavioural Economics.
I am Director of CBESS, and deputy member of the Faculty's Internal Peer Review Panel.
