Applied Microeconomics, Behavioral / Experimental Economics

Laura K. Gee received her PhD in Economics from UC San Diego in 2013. Her research is in behavioral economics — with a particular focus on how individual decision making is influenced by group dynamics. She currently has two main lines of research. One line is about punishment and the provision of public goods including charitable contributions. The second is about the relationship between social networks and labor markets. Her studies rely on both lab and field experiments, as well as observational data.
