The research group is comprised of experts specialising in both theoretical and experimental economics. Their comprehensive research covers an extensive array of fields such as decision theory, political and institutional economics, industrial organisation, environmental economics, financial markets, negotiation strategies, and operations research. The team members are dedicated to addressing pressing societal questions, including the following:
- How do individuals form networks, and in what ways do these networks shape opinions, beliefs, actions, or cultural attributes?
- Which factors contribute to misallocation and talent distribution in educational markets, and what role do colleges play in social mobility?
- How does the use of ambiguous language affect information transmission?
- What are the implications of affirmative action policies on society?
- How do skewed perceptions of decision environments impact individual welfare and financial choices?
Moreover, the group's work delves into the realm of political economy, exploring subjects such as policy implementability, behavioural voting models, public opinion dynamics, and public health issues.
The societal implications of the group's research are substantial, as it illuminates key facets of human behaviour and decision-making across various economic settings. Their findings have informed policymaking and enhanced the operation of markets and other allocation mechanisms, ultimately fostering a more equitable and sustainable society.
