Ralph-C Bayer joined the School of Economics 2002 after completing his PhD at the London School of Economics. Dr Bayer has established AdLab -- the Adelaide Laboratory for Experimental Economics, one of the first experimental laboratories for Economics in Australia. Dr Bayer currently is the director of AdLab.
Dr Bayer's research has been published in leading Economics Journals. He has presented his work at numerous conferences and invited seminars all around the world.
* Ph.D. Economics, 2002, London School of Economics (Advisor: Frank Cowell)
* Diplom Volkswirt (comparable to MA Economics), 1997, University of Cologne, ranked first for the year
Dr Bayer's research focuses on behavioural economics, experimental economics and game theory. Dr. Bayer is particularly interested in explaining why humans' behaviour regularly deviates from what standard game theory predicts. His experimental studies focus on limited cognitive abilities, social preferences and reciprocity. In more traditional work Dr Bayer has worked extensively on topics related to tax evasion of individuals and firms and on questions related to market structure and conduct.
Dr Bayer currently is the principal investigator of two ARC Discovery Projects. One project is aiming at designing methods and procedures for an effective and efficient coporate tax enforcement, while the other project (together with Paul Pezanis-Christou) researches efficient ways to sell multiple objects in acutions.
