Biography

I have worked on the areas of poverty measurement and the economics of education but am primarily a behavioural/experimental economist. I am specifically interested in how the ‘rules of the market’ (e.g. competition, prices, profit-seeking) and the ‘rules of the family’ (e.g. altruism, reciprocal exchange, fairness) interact, and broadly interested in issues of how to measure and define unobservables within the revealed preference paradigm.
