About Jesse A Matheson
I am an Associate Professor in Economics at the University of Sheffield. My primary research objective is to understand how social and economic context influences individual consumption choice and behavior. Specifically, to what extent do the decisions made by others influence our decisions? My work explores the implications that this has for economic theory, measurement and policy. I am also interested in the effect of public policy and policy design on population health and well-being.
