Hamideh conducts research in behavioural economics using experimental methods. Her research focuses on social preferences and decisions made in the presence of a moral wiggle room. She joined the Centre for Economics of Obesity in 2021, where she is involved in research targeting the determinants of obesity across the retail workstream. With this project she explores how interventions can modify behaviour and lead to a healthier lifestyle.
