Biography

Dr Aaron Nicholas is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Economics in Deakin Business School. Aaron is a behavioural and experimental economist. He is 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 is broadly interested in issues of how to measure and define unobservable within the revealed preference paradigm. He has also worked in the areas of poverty measurement, and the economics of education.
