Recherches

Axes de recherche

Interests
In its most general sense, my research program seeks to elucidate the driving forces behind economic decisions and to understand how behavioral motives and social considerations affect market outcomes, organizations and institutions. Most of my work can be attributed to the field of "behavioral economics", a relatively new line of research that combines insights from economics and psychology and examines systematic departures from the standard assumptions in economic models

Methods
In exploring my research questions I apply a variety of research tools, including laboratory experiments, field experiments and game theoretic models. The great advantage of the experimental approach is that it allows establishing a controlled decision environment in which behavior can be perfectly observed. Experiments enable us to study interaction of people in a very clean and well defined set-up, where many of the measurement and endogeneity problems present in field data can be overcome Furthermore, in many cases experimental investigations can provide valuable insights as they permit direct and rigorous tests of theoretical predictions. My research therefore reflects an ongoing interplay between experimental examinations and advancements in behavioral theory
