Mr Brett Williams

Postdoctoral Fellow
Business School
School of Economics

I'm a postdoctoral fellow at University of New South Wales in the School of Economics with the AGORA Centre for Market Design. I graduated with a Ph.D. in economics from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2022. 

My research interests broadly fall into the fields of experimental and behavioral economics, accompanied by some ventures into microeconomic theory. More narrowly, I study market design and microstructure using mediums such as laboratory experiments, agent-based modelling, and simulations.

​Additional works, interests and ideas also reach fields including decision theory and risk preference elicitation, stochastic dominance, and queuing.
