Welcome to the web pages of Jaromír Kovářík

I am an Associate Professor in the Economics Department of the University of the Basque Country. I am also affiliated with CERGE-EI and Faculties of Economics and Faculty of Arts of the University of West Bohemia in the Czech Republic.

I am a Guest Editor of a virtual special issue on Behavioral and Experimental Research on Social Networks in the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics.

I am a social scientist. My main research interests are human cognition, social norms, social preferences, and social networks. My research is both theoretical and empirical. I often use experiments, real-life data, theoretical models, and occasionally computer simulations.

The topics of my research lie on the border of various behavioral disciplines such as economics, psychology, biology, and sociology. This determines the methodologies I use in my research: (behavioral and evolutionary) game theory, agent-based modeling, experimental economics, data analysis, and network theory.

I have supervised or currently supervise the following Ph.D. students (with their first placement):
