Alex Rees-Jones, PhD
Assistant Professor, Wharton School
Dr. Rees-Jones’ research is focused on facilitating the use of psychological data and psychological models in economic applications. In one line of research, he studies how models of loss aversion can be used in economic field applications, such as understanding our response to taxation. Another line of research assesses happiness and “subjective well-being” data, with a focus on understanding the strengths and weaknesses of such data for predicting the choices one makes.
