Speaker biography

Hector’s main research interests lie within behavioural economics. He mainly uses lab experimental methods to study the economic implications and foundations of behavioural phenomena. In particular, he focuses on the determinants of cooperation in collective actions, the emergence and enforcement of social norms, and recently the role of behavioural biases on voting. Hector received his PhD from the University of Valencia and, after a two-year postdoctoral position at Nuffield College (Oxford), became a lecturer at the University of Birmingham in September 2013.
