Brit Grosskopf joined the University of Exeter Business School as a Professor of Economics in September 2013, she is the current head of the Economics department. Originally from Germany, Brit did her undergraduate degree in economics at the Humboldt University in Berlin. She completed her PhD dissertation Social Preferences and Learning in Experimental Games under the supervision of Rosemarie Nagel at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, in 2000. She then spent three years at Harvard Business School, where she was a post-doc with Al Roth (Nobel Laureate, Economics 2012). Brit then took a tenure-track job at Texas A&M University where she was granted tenure in 2009. She moved to the University of Birmingham as a Professor in Experimental Economics in 2011, where she founded the Birmingham Experimental Economics Laboratory (BEEL) of which she was the Director until she joined Exeter.

Brit’s research interests lie at the intersection of economics and psychology. She uses experimental methods to study individual and group behaviour with a particular interest in social preferences, reasoning, learning, reputation, identity and happiness. Brit has obtained research support from the National Science Foundation, the British Academy and the Russell Sage Foundation.
