Prof Daniel Rigby

I have broad research interests but mainly focus on the relationships between economy, agriculture and the environment. 
A great deal of my recent work has involved choice and choice experiments. This has led to growing interest in psychology, economics and choice and also choice and plagiarism within Higher Education.
