Research

My main research interests are behavioral economics and industrial organization. The psychological factors that affect economic decisions are important to understand and this is increasingly being acknowledged in economic research. How firms interact is sometimes a different question, in which I study market structures and firm behavior as a response to competition. In one study I test if firms are more likely to cheat when competition is fiercer. I test this hypothesis using well-established quasi-experimental methods. I believe in empirical and experimental research methods to not only test hypotheses, but to develop and improve theory.
