Alice Hsiaw

Assistant Professor of Economics in the Brandeis International Business School

Specializations:
Behavioral Economics, Applied Microeconomic Theory

My primary fields of interest are behavioral economics and applied microeconomic theory, particularly consumer behavior and industrial organization. In the realm of behavioral economics, I have focused on how individuals can improve self-regulation in intertemporal choice through internal commitment. In the realm of consumer behavior, I have studied the implications of imperfect information on the part of consumers for phenomena such as social interaction, persuasion in advertising, and the evaluation of expert advice.
