Lasha Lanchava is a Research Fellow at the International School of Economics – Tbilisi State University (ISET) Policy Institute and a PhD candidate at the Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education – Economics Institute in Prague.
In his research Lasha takes an interdisciplinary approach that bridges insights from behavioral economics, evolutionary, cultural and social psychology, law and economics and evolutionary biology and uses the techniques of experimental economics, to understand observed heterogeneity in economic preferences. The topics he explores include other-regarding preferences, free choice and obedience, risk and loss aversion. Lasha also exploits and studies natural and quasi-natural experiments to shed light on some important aspects of social policy.
