Kia Ora. Haere Mai.
Hello and Welcome.

I am Professor of Experimental Economics at the University of Auckland and served as the Chair of the Department of Economics from 2013 till 2019. The Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) database ranks me among the top 5% of Economics authors world-wide. You can find out more about my research and publications on the “Research” page. Among other prestigious appointments, in 2020, I served as Visiting Professor of Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School. I have two new books: Behavioural Economics and Experiments from Routledge and an edited volume Research Agenda for Experimental Economics from Edward Elgar. My “Author” page has more details. I write frequently in popular media. These are available under “Popular Writing“. Information on other media activities including public lectures are available “Here”. I am one of the founding members of Covid Plan B, a famous/notorious (depending on your perspective) group of academics devoted to providing a rigorous evidence based contrary perspective to received wisdom on the pandemic. You can follow me on Linkedin. My newsletter Uncommon Sense contains my musings on various topical issues.
