Andrew Lewis

Andrew is a member at St Cross and is studying on the MSc in comparative social policy. He is a graduate of the University of Vermont in economics and Carnegie Mellon University, where he studied public policy and behavioral economics, and was a research and teaching assistant to Dr. George Loewenstein. At CMU, he worked as a researcher at the BEDR Policy Lab, conducting experiments on topics ranging from confirmation bias in voting beliefs to the efficacy of various incentives for inducing pro-social behavior. At Oxford, he works at Nuffield College’s Centre for Experimental Social Science (CESS). Andrew is particularly interested in the behavioral and psychological effects of poverty and inequality, and how folk conceptions of fairness shape attitudes towards these phenomena. He is currently editor-in-chief at The Decision Lab, a Montreal-based think tank and online publication that aims to democratize access to academic insights stemming from the fields of behavioral and decision sciences.
