Research Synopsis

Bradley is primarily an experimental economist. He uses experimental methods in the laboratory and in the field to test theories and examine phenomena in product and labor markets, industrial organization, negotiations, and the role of cooperation, trust, honesty, signaling, emotions, and cognitive biases in games and individual choice. He also uses rational choice theories and experimental methods to understand seemingly irrational behavior, such as religiosity, religious institutions, in-kind gift-giving and more.
