Prior to Warwick he was based at Cambridge. He was educated at Cambridge and Oxford (Nuffield College) where he obtained his doctorate. His main areas of interest are behavioural economics, experimental economics, subjective wellbeing and economic theory. His early work was on learning and games, with applications to industrial organisation and finance, but has always included a mixture of theory and experimental methods. More recently he has been working at the borders with psychology, attempting to understand how psychological traits, cognitive biases, mood, language and beliefs affect behaviour.
