Dr Robert Metcalfe
His research focuses on applied microeconomics, with particular reference to behavioural economics and environmental economics. Some of the work he is currently carrying out is valuing non-market goods by differing measures of utility, determining the impact of experience on people’s preferences, and examining the role of monetary and non-monetary incentives on energy and environmental behaviours. He is also interested in the role of field experiments in regulation and evaluation.
Rob received first-class undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the University of Wales Swansea and London School of Economics respectively, and received a PhD in Economics from Imperial College London. He has also worked as an economist in the Government Economic Service. He joined the Smith School in November 2009.
