Background and experience
Following a PhD at the University of Aberdeen, Manos took up a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at McMaster University working closely with faculty at the Department of Economics and the McMaster Experimental Economics Laboratory (McEEL).

Current work and interests
Manos’ work focused on applied economics with an interest in a) experimental techniques (i.e. choice experiments and contingent valuation), their novel applications and a number of methodological aspects of their implementation and b) and non-experimental frameworks, with a focus on individual and household behaviours (using large secondary datasets), particularly determinants of individual health behaviour (e.g. self-assessed health, informal care, obesity etc.) and subjective well-being and the econometric modelling of such functions.
