Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the areas of behavioural finance and experimental finance. Past publications consider trading behaviour of, and impact of, retail investors in stock markets. Currently, I am working on the same themes in laboratory markets.

I received my PhD (Finance) in 2007 from the University of New South Wales, and both my MBA and BSc (Psychology), from the University of Massachusetts.

I am a member of the CFA-Institute, hold a Chartered Financial Analyst® charter and am on the editorial board of the Journal of Behavioural and Experimental Finance.

I have published numerous articles in academic journals, including the Journal of Behavioural Finance, the European Journal of Finance, the International Review of Finance and Accounting and Finance.

My research interests are in Experimental Finance, Behavioural Finance and Individual Investor Behaviour. My current research is supported by a Discovery Early Career Research grant from the Australia Research Council.

I have lectured at Bond University, the University of New South Wales, BITCC in Beijing, and the University of Massachusetts and have also worked as a contract consultant for USAID and as a Financial Analyst for the Northfield Mount Hermon School.

Statement for HDR students

Research students working with me are conducting laboratory experiments in trading behaviour and asset price bubbles.

Student projects include studies of the impact of endowed vs. earned money on asset price bubbles, the impact of tournament incentives on asset price bubbles, the relation of the structure of tournament incentives to trading behaviour, and the relation of risk attitudes to trading behaviour.
