Bradley Ruffle is an experimental and behavioral economist. He uses experimental methods in the laboratory and in the field to test theories and examine economic and social phenomena. His research spans a diverse range of topics that include large-buyer discounts; fairness in negotiations; optimal pricing to introduce a network good; methods to collude in diverse environments; how different forms of taxation affect consumer purchases and individual labor-supply decisions; the role of beauty in hiring decisions; mechanisms for eliciting honest reporting; how religious groups are able to achieve high levels of within-group trust and cooperation; and reasons for in-kind gift-giving.

He has published in top journals in economics, management and anthropology such as American Economic Review, Economic Journal, American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, Management Science, Current Anthropology, RAND Journal of Economics and Journal of Public Economics.
