Martin Poulter, ICT Manager
Martin was one of the original staff of the centre. As well as programming the site management system, he is web editor of the centre's journals and responsible for overall maintenance of the site. His content contributions include the Handbook guide "Using the Web to Teach Economics" and co-editing the Handbook for Economics Teaching Assistants.
His PhD was done at the Philosophy Department of the University of Bristol and involves applying decision theory to the choice of opinion, and also defending the descriptive role of decision theory as a framework for explaining and predicting behaviour.
Martin is co-author and maintainer of the Internet Economist tutorial. He has created interactive tutorials on utility theory and the law of demand and the Prisoner's Dilemma, to illustrate how easy it is to make online material interactive. Those tutorials have more information about Martin's publications.
In his time outside the Economics Network, Martin is a volunteer Director of Wikimedia UK, a non-profit company that supports and promotes Wikipedia and its sister projects.
