I'm interested in judgment and decision making generally, and more particularly in interactive decisions and games. My research is largely experimental, but I'm also interested in game theory itself, and issues relating to its foundations, and I use Monte Carlo methods for some of my research into the evolution of cooperation. I collaborate with economists, mathematicians, and psychologists, and I consider my research to be cross-disciplinary.
