Jennifer Jacquet is interested in cooperation, particularly with regards to common resource problems. For the past three years, she has worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia in both the Sea Around Us Project lab, as well as in the Department of Mathematics, with the mathematical biologist, Christoph Hauert. She will join the faculty at New York University this fall. Her recent publications are in the realm of experimental game theory, with a particular interest in the role of social approval – honor and shame – in encouraging cooperation. She is also currently working on a book about shame, to be published in Germany by Fischer in 2013.
