Lead: Dr Subir Bose

This research group will focus on research that deals with modelling the decision-making behaviour of individuals and firms, and its foundations in economic theory.

Members of this group will work on the development of models to describe the strategic behaviour of individual and firms, and on topics such as information economics, industrial economics and game theory.

The purposes of the group will also be to help mentor junior colleagues who wish to work in this field; to provide an intellectual powerhouse for those colleagues who, despite being primarily associated with other groups, carry out research based on models at a firm/individual level; and to foster a culture of research-driven teaching.
