Noah became the Assistant CESS/Lab Director in June 2021. Noah began at Nuffield as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Centre for Experimental Social Sciences (CESS) in August 2019. His primary duties include meeting with fellows about CESS initiatives, increasing CESS’s global profile, managing CESS’s ethics review process, organizing CESS’s speaker series, and assisting researchers working with CESS on their experiments. Prior to this post, he received his BA (honors) from Colgate University in 2013 and his PhD from Texas A&M University in 2019.
Noah specializes in experimental and behavioral economics with a focus on the importance of identity in forming behavior. He uses experimental methods to study how these behavioral differences manifest and contribute to disparity in economic outcomes across social groups. His current research contributes to our understanding of in-group bias in trust, the effect of social norms, and the relevance of multiple identities in decision making. He is currently working on acquiring funding for the pilot phase of a Preferences Panel and preparing to run a laboratory experiment studying the role of entitlement in encouraging oppressive behaviour during the upcoming term.
