David’s research takes place mainly within the realm of decision-theory. His focus has been observational learning, the process by which private information passes from one decision-maker to another through the vessel of observed decisions. Much of his research takes place in the controlled environment of an experimental economics laboratory, where beliefs, payoffs and information can be carefully controlled and measured. His job market paper studied the effect of network effects on the observational learning process. He is also interested in social preferences and sports economics.
