Bio

My main research interest concerns the influence of emotions and psychological dimensions on economic decision making and behavior. I use economic experiments in combination with psychological methods. In recent years I have been interested in topics related to social ties and social intelligence. For example I have studied situations where players have to decide whether to trust another person (for a video introduction see here) and decisions taken by families especially spouses (for a video see here).
