Professor Ralph-Christopher Bayer
I am working in the areas of behavioural and experimental economics, applied game theory, public economics and industrial organisation.
I am the Founding Director of the Adelaide Laboratory for Experimental Economics. Together with A/Prof Paul Pezanis-Christou and a group of PhD and Honours students, we currently are working on projects such as:
- Effective and Efficient Corporate Tax Enforcement
- Information Quality in Auctions of Multiple Objects
- Efficiency in Contests
