Behavioral Economics, Uncertainty and Covid-19 (Edward Elgar, 2022), Behavioural Economics and Experiments (Routledge, 2021) and Experiments in Economics: Playing with Money (Routledge, 2009). I also edited the volumes Research Agenda for Experimental Economics (Edward Elgar, 2021) and Research Advances in Experimental Research in Social Dilemma Games (MDPI, 2016).

I am Senior Editor of Oxford Open Economics, a new open access journal (and the first of its kind in Economics) from Oxford University Press.

I have won multiple research excellence awards and in 2018 was given a Distinguished Contribution Award by the University of Auckland Business School for my contributions to the faculty. In 2018-2019, I served on the Economics and Human and Behavioural Sciences Panel of the Royal Society NZ Marsden Fund.
