Grzegorz Mardyla is an Associate Professor of Economics at Kindai University in Osaka, Japan. He earned his PhD in Economics from Yokohama National University.
His past research has mainly focused on behavioral biases in information processing and their effects on financial markets, with main topics of interest being: investor self-image biases, borrowing aversion, financial herding, and perception of randomness.
He co-authored an experimental study on disposition effect and prospect theory published in Journal of Behavioral Finance. He has also written two chapters (in Japanese), “Economic Psychology of Money” and “Behavioral Finance”, for an introductory behavioral economics textbook released in 2017 in Japan.
Greg’s Eastern-European background coupled with many years spent living and working in Japan has recently sparked an interest in studying the significance of cross-cultural diversity in social norms and values for economic behavior.
Having already started with an economic experiment on conformity in deception and altruism, he hopes to spend the next phase of his research life exploring group identity, trust, social norms and related socio-behavioral phenomena.
