Welcome to my website!

I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Exeter, which I joined in 2012. Before joining Exeter I was a Professor of Economics at the University of Birmingham where I founded the Birmingham Experimental Economics Laboratory (BEEL). Prior to moving to the UK I had the pleasure of completing a post-doc with Alvin Roth at Harvard University and was an Associate Professor at Texas A & M University. I completed my PhD at Pompeu Fabra in 2000 under the supervision of Rosemarie Nagel.

My research interests lie broadly in the fields of behavioural and experimental economics. I have used laboratory experiments to study boundedly rational behaviour and learning, and reputation and auction mechanisms. I have also studied the effects of happiness and anger on economic choices. Most recently I have employed field experiments to study other-regarding behaviour and discrimination in real markets.

My research has been published in journals such as the American Economic Review, Games and Economic Behavior, the Journal of Public Economics, Experimental Economics, the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization and the Journal of Behavioral Decision Making. I am currently an Associate Editor at the Journal of Economic Psychology and a member of the editorial board at the International Journal of Game Theory.
