I am a behavioural scientist with a background in Economics. Among other funding bodies, the Economic and Social Research Council, the National Science Foundation, the European Union, and the World Bank have funded my research.

I am currently doing laboratory and field work on the behavioural consequences of conflict, the determinants of social change, and behavioural models of bounded rationality.
