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.

Andrea's main interests are in the areas of individual decision-making, in particular reference-dependent preferences and decisions under risk and uncertainty. He is also interested in exploring how market interaction shapes people's preferences, and in various aspects of strategic behaviour, including coordination, bargaining and other-regarding behaviour.

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.

Recent research has been on the implementation of the economic approach to competition policy and the implications for market structure. This includes research on merger remedies, state aid and abuse of dominance.  Current research includes work on: institutional design for competition policy; unnecessary intervention in the presence of behavioural consumers; and policy implications of behavioural consumers..
