I have two new books out soon: Behavioural Economics and Experiments from Routledge and an edited volume Research Agenda for Experimental Economics from Edward Elgar. You can find more details about my books on the “Author” page. I am represented by High Spot Literary in my book writing endeavours. I contribute frequently to the popular media. These are available under “Popular Writing“. Information on other media activities including public lectures are available “Here”. If interested, you can follow me on Linkedin.
