Behavioural and Experimental Economics
Aniol Llorente-Saguer is a Reader in Economics at Queen Mary University of London, specialized in the areas of behavioural and experimental economics and political economy.
His main topic of research has been on voting behaviour and properties of electoral rules. Through the combination of microeconomic theory and experimental methods, he has studied the properties of a number of voting rules to potentially improve collective decision making. He has also studied issues on auctions, tournaments and contests, equilibrium selection and coalition formation.
He received both his PhD and BA in economics from Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Before joining Queen Mary, he worked at the California Institute of Technology, the Max Planck Institute for the Study on Collective Goods and visited the Centre for the Study of Rationality at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and New York University.
