About Me:

My primary research focus is on the ways in which individual psychology and market incentives feedback on one another, shaping the salient social identities and frames of reference indivdiuals use when making decisions. This research is an outgrowth of my interests in poverty, development, and the ways in which individuals adapt their attitudes and beliefs to their circumstances. I serve as the Associate Dean (Reseach) for the Faculty of Arts and director of the University of Calgary's Behavioural and Experimental Economic Laboratory. I am a research fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, IZA and the Institute for Advanced Policy Research.
