Grant’s research interests include food accessibility, food security, game theory, and behavioral economics. Broadly, he focuses on theorizing, visualizing, and modeling data that improves community well-being. His current work includes creating a variation of the Trust Game that implements a Bayesian game theoretic model that imbeds residents’ trust in government and store operators’ decisions to open and maintain a grocery stores in a low income and low food access area. Additionally, he applied his theoretic Trust Game to primary survey data and secondary data to measure the likelihood of a successful outcome given racial/ethnic disparities.
