Expertise Summary

My research has tended to focus on behavioural and experimental economics. I have used a variety of research methods, including field experiments, lab experiments, online experiments, micro-econometrics, meta-analysis and systematic literature review.

Research Interests

Within behavioural economics, my work has focused in particular on the topics of discrimination and social norms. I am keen to study the effects of culture and religion on behaviour, and also hold strong interests in experimental methodology and happiness economics. However, topics from any area of economics, or from across the social sciences, may take my interest.
