Personal profile


My main research area is behavioral economics, the study of the pyschological drivers of economic decision making. Most of my research can be summarized in three topics. My work on behavioral public economics has studied the role of psychological drivers of corruption and unethical behavior. My work on behavioral labor economics has investigated whether gender differences in a competitiveness trait may help explain gender differences in the labor market. My work on behavioral environmental economics tries to understand the psychological resistance against certain types of environmental policies. Most of my research has used laboratory experiments.


My main areas of teaching are microeconomics and behavioral economics. I currently teach the following courses:

  1. Microeconomic theory with applications: a first-year bachelor course for the "international business" and "economy and society" programs.
  2. Economic and financial decision making: an elective in the masters programs in economics and industrial engineering.

I am also happy to supervise bachelors and masters theses in any topic, though my areas of specialization are the following:

  • Behavioral economics (including behavioral finance and behavioral marketing)
  • Applied Microeconomics
