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 microeconomic theory with applications, a first-year bachelor course for the international business program.
