My research focuses on decisions under uncertainty in individual and social contexts as well as the ensuing policy applications to high-risk decision areas such as medical decision making. I am also interested in the methodological challenges that underpin the elicitation of more accurate and replicable measures of subjective preferences, beliefs and tastes. I pursue these investigations through a mixture of lab, online and field experiments as well state of the art statistical modelling.

Research Interests:

  • Behavioral and Experimental Economics
  • Decisions under risk or uncertainty
  • Behavior in social dilemmas
