J. Jobu Babin, Ph.D. -- Welcome!

I am an applied microeconomist interested in experimental and quantitative methods, as well as insights from cognitive science, that explain policy-relevant deviations from standard theory. My areas of specialization are experimental economics, behavioral economics and game theory, and labor and discrimination economics.  I have recently accepted a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor of Economics at Western Illinois University and serve as an Adjunct Professor at Christian Brothers University in Memphis, TN. 

In my research, I seek to understand the behavior of agents with social preferences, the determinants of pro-social choice, the dimensions of fairness, and how people use communication and stereotypes in economic decision-making.

I currently teach Introduction to Microeconomics and Macroeconomics, 
Game Theory, Managerial Economics, and have helped to teach a bevy of specialized classes (such as Econometrics, Behavioral Economics, Microeconomic Theory, Labor) on both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
