Joaquín Gómez-Miñambres joined the Economics faculty in the fall of 2017. He teaches Principles of Economics, Intermediate Microeconomics, Behavioral Economics, Personnel Economics, and a capstone course on Experimental Economics.

Prof. Gómez-Miñambres research lies at the intersection of behavioral economics and experimental economics. Much of his research deals with personnel economics, which deals with the selection and motivation of workers. His research has also examined how the way consumption alternatives are presented (choice architecture) influences consumption decisions.

His work has been published in journals such as Management Science, Games and Economics Behavior, Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, Journal of Economic Psychology, and Economic Inquiry. He has served as the Behavioral & Experimental Section Editor of the The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics; co-editor of a special issue at the Journal of Economic Psychology; and as local committee member and scientific committee member of the Behavioral and Experimental Economists of the Mid-Atlantic (BEEMA) conference.
Prof. Gómez-Miñambres is a research associate at the Economics Science Institute at Chapman University, where he conducts much of his experimental work.
