Evan CalfordEvan Calford is a Senior Lecturer in Economics, and a John Mitchell Fellow.  A member of the John Mitchell Poverty Lab, Evan researches in the fields of experimental economics, behavioural economics and game theory. In particular, he is interested in applications of ambiguity aversion and other behavioural models of uncertainty to game theory.
