I joined George Mason University in 2001.  My main department is Economics, but I also have appointments in the Law School and the Neuroscience Program.


I founded the  Center for the Study of Neuroeconomics in 2004.  It is currently co-directed by myself and Frank Krueger.


I am also on the faculty at ICES (The interdisciplinary center for the Study of Neuroeconomics) and the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study.


I am an IFREE -- International Foundation for research in Experimental Economics-- distinguished scholar.  You can read a short blurb about me here.

eJournal Neuroeconomics

I am co-editor of the SSRN e-Journal in Neuroeconomics with Michael Jensen.



Terraeconomicus is a group of islands (regions) that I maintain in Second Life to teach and do research on virtual worlds.


EconWillow is a toolkit for running economics experiments in Python and HTML.  It was written by Jaap Weel, one of my graduate students who ended up working for Facebook.  The willow API makes it easy to create a subject interface on a webpage and network together many subjects into a single networked experiment.  The manual for EconWillow can be downloaded here.
