I am interested in supervising PhD students if you want to write dissertations in experimental economics (including but not limited to experimental political economy and experimental organizational economics).

When I was at Durham University, I conducted a number of experimental projects at various universities - the University of York, Durham University, Newcastle University, University of Copenhagen, Brown University, Kansai University and Waseda University.

When I was at Bowling Green State University, I conducted my experiments at the School of Information at the University of Michigan, and at Brown University.
