Professor of Economics, Tasmanian Behavioural Lab, University of Tasmania

I am a professor of behavioural economics at the University of Tasmania. I have taught and researched at several universities in Europe, Asia, Australia and America. My research is generally about how people make decisions in social and strategic situations. I am particular interested in the effects of culture and religion on choice, and how people's interactions are shaped by computer mediation such as social media and virtual worlds.
