My research uses behavioural economics to address microeconomics and public policy questions. Recent examples:
How do you increase flu vaccine uptake?
Does reciprocity foster communication?
Can guilt motivate people to provide discrete public goods?
How can voluntary redistribution help coordination?
Why might signing an agreement be bad for public good provision?
How should fundraisers advertise donations when donors care about prestige?
Can networks of reciprocity solve coordination problems in discrete public good games?
