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. Information about recent and old publications as well as current research projects is available on the “Research” page. Among other prestigious appointments, in 2020, I served as Visiting Professor of Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School. My new book “Behavioural Economics and Experiments” is due out from Routledge in May 2021. An edited volume “Research Agenda for Experimental Economics” will be published by Edward Elgar in early 2021. 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 on topical issues. These writings are available under “Popular Writing“. Other media activities including public lectures for a general audience are available “Here”.
