Alex's research interests are in the area of interactive decision making in economic situations, known as game theory. His recent research focuses on the co-evolution of preferences and strategies and the formation of beliefs in such situations. Work on evolution of preferences, which combines evolution and rationality, allows to endogenise the formation of preferences in certain interactive situations. Work on belief formation tackles questions of how beliefs can be formed and how equilibria can be obtained by an adaptive process. Since many economic situations can be described in the form of games, these questions are important for economic analysis.

Alex has teaching interests in Microeconomics and Mathematical Economics, as well as in more specialised areas of Game Theory, Computational Economics, Economics of Information, Public Economics and Industrial Organisation. Alex has taught several modules in some of these areas at the School of Economics at Nottingham.
Currently, Alex is involved in teaching the following modules:
- Advanced Mathematical Economics (3rd UG)
- Public Sector Economics (2nd UG)
Previously, Alex also taught
- Numerical Methods in Economics (3rd UG)
- Microeconomic Theory (MSc)
- Industrial Economics (2nd UG)
- Advanced Microeconomic Theory (MSc)
- Mathematical Economics (1st UG)
- Pre-sessional Mathematics (MSc)
- Pre-sessional Econometrics (MSc)
Currently Alex works on the theoretical and experimental analysis of behavior in bargaining situations with hidden information and communication, and on strategic effects of different beliefs in interactive situations. Alex has also started or continued research projects on the performance of economic mechanisms for eliciting information from a behavioral point of view, and on foundations of solution concepts in economic games.
