Ernst Fehr

Professor of Microeconomics and Experimental Economic Research and chairman of the Department of Economics at the University of Zürich, Switzerland. His research covers the areas of the evolution of human cooperation and sociality, in particular fairness, reciprocity and bounded rationality. He is also well known for his important contributions to the new field of neuroeconomics, as well as to behavioral finance and experimental economics. According to IDEAS/REPEC, he is the second-most influential German-speaking economist, and is ranked at 99th globally and has been candidate to be laureated with the Nobel Prize of Economics.

Grainne Fitzsimons

Ph.D., New York University, Psychology. Associate Professor Management, Fuqua School of Business Member, DIBS Center, D-CIDES MemberMy research focuses on self-regulation, or how people guide their thoughts, feelings, and behavior in an effort to move toward desired end-states. In the Brain Sciences, I am interested in understanding the neurological basis of self-regulation, and how social situations can shape these processes.

Guillaume Frechette

About hinself: My interests revolve around the testing of economic models, mostly having to do with Industrial Organization and Political Economy. This has led me to work on bargaining and infinitely repeated games. I was trained under John H. Kagel at Ohio State University and then Alvin E. Roth at Harvard University. The bulk of my work uses data from laboratory experiment, although some of my work uses field data. My work on bargaining started with "Bargaining in Legislatures: An Experimental Investigation of Open versus Closed Amendment Rules" co-authored with John H. Kagel and Steven F. Lehrer which came out in the American Political Science Review.

Paul Glimcher

About himself: My post-doctoral training was in oculomotor physiology. Working with Prof. David Sparks researching the brainstem and mesencephalic nuclei that control eye rotations, I uncovered evidence that structures participating in the execution of saccadic eye movements might be involved in planning those movements as well. Evidence of this type has been accumulating throughout the neuraxis, but few signals have been associated with any one of the covert processes postulated to intervene between sensation and action. As a result, over the past decade my laboratory has focused on the identification and characterization of signals...

Todd Hare

About himself: Decision making is a core aspect of human behaviors and the ability to make good choices is necessary for personal health and happiness as well as the efficient functioning of society as a whole. Our goal is to understand the neural mechanisms of decision making in healthy, typical populations as well as how these processes become dysfunctional in specific behavioral disorders and pathophysiologies.My previous research has examined the neural networks that mediate decision making for various reward types (primary, monetary, social). We have shown that while key areas of the decision network are recruited across choice domains...

Geoffrey Hodgson

About himself: My current research focuses on the theoretical and methodological foundations of institutional and evolutionary economics. How are institutions built up and sustained? What are their economic and other effects? How do they evolve? This research agenda has immediate applications for the understanding of learning, routines, technological change, and economic development. One focus is on the theory and nature of the firm, and its place in a broader theory of institutions and institutional change. Another focus is on the evolution of institutions, the application of Darwinian principles to socio-economic evolution...

Marco Janssen

About hin self and his activities: Our societies experience unprecedented challenges to sustain common resources at a scale we have never seen before. I want to understand how people solve collective problems at different levels of scale, My research focuses on problems related to sustainability of the environment. My questions pertain to: What makes groups cooperate? What is the role of information? How does the ecological context affect the social fabric? How do people deal with a changing environment? How can we use these insights to address global challenges? To address these questions I combine behavioral experiments...
