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. I am also the Founder and Director of DECIDE- the University of Auckland Business Making Lab. The Research Papers in Economics (RePEc) database ranks me among the top 5% of Economics authors world-wide. Among other appointments, in 2020, I served as Visiting Professor of Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School. I am currently working on a number of new projects including a new book “Behavioural Economics and Experiments” (forthcoming from Routledge in 2021) and edited volume “Research Agenda for Experimental Economics” (forthcoming from Edward Elgar in 2021). You can find more details about my books on the “Author” page and my on-going research projects on the “Research” page. I contribute frequently to the popular media on topical issues. These writings are available under “Popular Writing“. Other media activities including public lectures for a general audience are available “Here”.
