Personal profile

I joined the School of Accounting, Economics and Finance as a Research Fellow in September 2023.

My full CV can be found at my personal website.

Research Interests

My research has mostly looked at how people make economic decisions on behalf of others, including when and why we lie for others, how paternalistic intentions affect decisions for others and whether we are more cautious for others under feelings of responsibility. However, my current research interests also include:

  • Decision-Making for Others
  • Ethical issues in AI use
  • Political Decision-Making
  • Medical Decision-Making

Media Availability

I am happy to take calls and emails from the media on my research, and am aware of the needs to respond to journalists in a timely manner. Please contact me directly at georgia.buckle@port.ac.uk
