Laura K. Gee received her PhD in Economics from UC San Diego in 2013 under the supervision of James Andreoni.

Her research is in behavioral economics — with a particular focus on how individual decision making is influenced by group dynamics. She currently has two main lines of research. One line is about the provision of public goods including charitable contributions. The second is about how people find their jobs utilizing data from large online websites like Facebook and LinkedIn. Her studies rely on both lab and field experiments, as well as observational data.

Laura joined IZA as a Research Affiliate in November 2016.
