Research Overview

I am Associate Professor in Economics at the University of Birmingham. I apply methods from behavioural economics to study cooperation, public goods provision and pro-environmental behaviour. I am interested in why individuals contribute to climate change mitigation, give to charities, or behave fairly and how such decisions vary with individuals' social and local identities and the presence of social information. I use experimental methods and analyse non-choice data to understand more about the cognitive processes that underlie cooperation, risk-taking and norm compliance.

I am co-leading the Behavioural Economics Research Group at the University of Birmingham

Currently I am co-editing a special issue on "Cognition and Economic Behavior" in the Journal of Economic Psychology
