JoergWeber from his website

Joerg Weber is currently a Research Fellow for the ESRC Network for Integrated Behavioural Science (NIBS) at Nottingham. He studied his MSc in Behavioural Economics at CeDEx and remained in Nottingham as a PhD candidate, where his thesis topic was 'Essays in Financial Literacy and Decision Making'.  After graduating in 2015, he was employed by the University of Nottingham as a post doc on the NIBS1 project, where he continues with NIBS2 - an extension of the initial project focussed on advancing behavioural science relevant to the understanding of consumer behaviour. You can find out more about Joerg on his personal website

"My interests lie at the intersection of applied behavioural economics and contemporary public policy concerns. In particular in household finance and financial decision making, using both microeconometric- and experimental methods. My research is generally concerned with cognitive biases and (sub-)optimal financial choice, consumer irrationality, household consumption & wider applications to public policy."
