Sean Crockett is an Associate Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics and Finance. His research primarily involves the use of experimental methods to investigate questions in general equilibrium theory, asset pricing, behavioral economics, and decision theory. His recent focus has been to characterize individual choice under uncertainty, the impact of these choices on market prices, and the relationship between individual choices made in isolation relative to analogous choices in a market environment.
