Research | Current

Together with Simona Fabrizi, Thomas Pfeiffer, Matthew Ryan and Addison Pan, I investigate the role ambiguity plays in collective decision-making. This project is supported by a Marsden Grant (16-UAO-190).

Together with Suzi Kerr, Edmund Lou, and James Tremewan, I investigate the institutions that govern climate negotiations.

Together with Francis Bloch and Simona Fabrizi, I investigate firm learning and its impact on competition in markets.

Together with Simona Fabrizi, Harry Kleyer and Jose Rodrigues-Neto, I am investigating the economics of botnets and Internet security.
