Donna Harris


Donna's current research examines how social identity and social interactions (through observing other’s choices and face-to-face communication) influence people’s decisions and behaviours in a wide range of context. These include resource allocation, charitable giving and social preferences, cooperation, financial learning and financial decisions, decisions involving risk and uncertainty, and cooperation in public goods. She also works on in-group favouritism and out-group discrimination and whether social norm enforcement can be used to deter in-group favouritism. She is also interested in studying corruption, particularly personal connections and nepotism and different policy interventions that could be used to combat corruption.
