human behaviour + economics | qut

Hi, welcome to my website! I'm a behavioural and experimental economist with research interests in sustainable financial decision-making, behavioural law and economics, public economics, information economics (esp. credence goods) and applied microeconomics more generally.

Currently, I am examining human behaviour in financial hardship situations. This includes understanding

(a) individual decision-making under pressures such as scarcity, cognitive load and varying levels of complexity,

(b) the behaviour of expert advisors in credence goods markets, and

(c) how the regulatory framework impedes or encourages optimal decision-making and advisory behaviour.

I'm just about to finish my PhD at the School of Economics and Finance at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. There, I'm also a research fellow with the Centre for Behavioural Economics, Society and Technology. I love interdisciplinary research and its real-world applications.
