Behavioural and Experimental Economics, Microeconomics
Asen is a Reader in the School of Economics and Finance at Queen Mary. His interests lie in the areas of Behavioural Economics, Experimental Economics, and Microeconomic Theory. His research so far has focused mainly on Behavioural Game Theory, which seeks to modify mainstream Game Theory by incorporating psychologically plausible assumptions on behaviour. In his work, Asen has tested existing models from Behavioural Game Theory and has also tried to advance new explanations of behaviour.
Asen obtained his PhD from the Ohio State University in 2007.
