My research interests are primarily in the field of economic psychology, particularly as it applies to taxation. Taxes are a very good field to apply both economics and psychology, because economics can be applied to predict the best rational course of action, and psychology can be applied to understand how observed behaviour differs from the purely rational course of action.
