Daniel Sgroi is a Professor of Economics at the Economics Department of the University of Warwick, and leads Theme 3 of the ESRC-funded CAGE centre, which seeks better ways to understand and measure subjective wellbeing and related behavioural concepts. He is Co-ordinator of the Experimental and Behavioural Economics Research Group at the Economics Department, a Fellow of CRETA centre and an active member of the inter-disciplinary DR@W group of behavioural and experimental researchers at Warwick. Outside Warwick, Daniel is a member of the World Wellbeing Panel based at the LSE, a Research Associate at Nuffield College and the Centre for Experimental Social Science at Oxford, and a Research Fellow at the IZA Institute of Labor Studies in Bonn.
Daniel’s main areas of interest are behavioural economics, experimental economics, subjective wellbeing ("happiness economics") and economic theory. His early work was on learning and games, with applications to industrial organisation and finance, but his work has always included a mixture of theory and experimental methods. More recently he has been working at the borders with psychology, attempting to understand how psychological traits, cognitive biases, mood, language and beliefs affect behaviour.
Daniel Sgroi joined IZA as a Research Fellow in May 2018.
