Jonathan's research interests are Experimental Economics, Behavioural Economics and Game Theory
Jonathan obtained his bachelor’s degree in Resource Economics (Honours) from the University of Sydney in 2013. After completing his studies, Jonathan went on to apply his understanding of Economic Analysis while working at a commodities trading firm.
His research interests cover a broad area of Theoretical Decision Making, Behavioural Economics, Experimental Economics, Game Theory and Mechanism Design.
He is currently researching the effects of mutual monitoring in fostering cooperation in teams. His first paper in his dissertation examines how the efficacy of mutual monitoring in fostering cooperation in teams may depend on the degree of approval seeking behaviour within a team. Overall, his doctoral research lies at the intersection of three bodies of literature: Experimental Economics, Behavioural Economics and Game Theory.
He also holds positions as a Research Assistant and a Casual Academic at UTS where he teaches Mathematics for Economics and Game Theory.
