My research is focused on, but not limited to, behavioural finance, addressing psychological influences on individuals' financial decision-making. In particular, my research project evaluates the individual investor's heterogeneous risk perception, and causes of anomalistic behaviour, or bounded rationality, investigating how these psychological features influence their financial decisions.
Potential research areas include the economic benefits of art festivals, the internationalisation of performing arts, audience developments and well-being, cultural appreciation and wealth inequality, where I can draw on my experience, knowledge, and the networks built through my professional involvements in theatre, the visual art sector, and arts festivals.
