Brian Monroe focuses primarily on the methodology of experimental economics and how economic experiments can provide insight into decisions under risk, particularly when objective probabilities of events are unknown. He has focused on how differences in experimentally elicited beliefs about the health risks of smoking, and how beliefs about the behavior of second movers in trust games influences the behavior of first movers. Brian is a research fellow at the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk at Georgia State University, and a research fellow at the Research Unit in Behavioural Economics and Neuroeconomics at the University of Cape Town. He holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Cape Town, and a Masters in Economics and Policy from Georgia State University.
