about the queensland behavioural economics group (QuBE)
The members of the Queensland Behavioural Economics (QuBE) group work on the latest developments in economic theory of behaviour, and design empirical studies using recent methodological advances in econometrics. The topics of research range from social and risk preferences to political and public economics.
The group aims to push the frontiers of theoretical, experimental and empirical research on economic behaviour, acknowledging that the behavioural sciences are undergoing a methodological unification across both social (economics, psychology, sociology) and natural sciences (neuroscience, endocrinology, genetics).
Research activities span from fundamental research to applications in areas such as policy design, health and education.
