Zack Grossman is an Associate Professor of Economics at UC Merced. He is a microeconomist who primarily studies the impact of social and psychological motivations, as well as cognitive phenomena, on economic decisions. His approach is behavioral, reflecting an openness to how insights from psychology can help us understand economic behavior and he uses both experimental and theoretical methods, often complementarily. Grossman completed his PhD in Economics in 2008 from UC Berkeley and previously held positions at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Florida State University.
