People

Listed below are 19 researchers (co-investigators) who are directly funded by the ESRC to work on the NIBS project. The Network also includes collaborators, who are individual researchers from partner institutions and other organisations working on aspects of the project.  We are also working with international partners and an Advisory Group, which consists of external academic advisors and affiliate members representing business, industry, media and government.

My primary research interests lie in the development of descriptive models decision making (both individual and strategic) through the application of a mixture of theoretical and experimental methods. I also have an ongoing interest in experimental methodology and in research at the interface of psychology and economics.

Research interests are individual decision-making; foundations and applications of game theory and experimental economics. Current specific research topics include the theoretical and experimental investigation of individual decision-making (especially in situations involving risk, time, or both), the role of experimental research in economics and modelling players' mutual knowledge in games.

My research is focused on the analysis of people’s preferences, particularly as they relate to decision making in the face of risk and uncertainty, with policy applications to health, safety and environmental issues. I am interested in incorporating psychological insights into modelling economic behaviour. This involves using experimental methods to test, develop and refine theory; and conducting surveys to address practical policy issues such as the valuation of health, safety and environmental benefits, and interventions in markets.
