Welcome to the Juniorprofessorship in Behavioral Economics
Our research interests lie in the fields of public, organizational, and behavioral economics. We apply tools from game theory and experiments to address our research questions.
Currently our research agenda focusses on decision-making and communication in groups, such as committees or cartels. As illustrated by the old proverb "A camel is a horse designed by committee", many interesting things can happen in groups. We study these phenomena both theoretically and experimentally.
Further research projects address questions related to individual decision-making, self-selection in the labor market, pro-social behavior, and the design of effective poverty alleviation policies for developing countries.
