As a behavioural economist, my research focuses primarily on incorporating empirically sound assumptions into applicable formal economic theory.
My main topic of interest is social learning. The process of social learning is the diffusion of the private information to all individuals through the interactions of observations, learning and choices. In numerous contexts, learning from others leads individuals to herd. My work investigates the validity of the rational view of herding with the aim of building behavioural models of social learning.
