About me

I conduct research in human behavior and economic development at the Düsseldorf Institute for Competition Economics, DICE at the Heinrich-Heine University, Düsseldorf. I also held an acting chair at the University of Mannheim and before coming to Düsseldorf, I was post-doctoral fellow at the Friedrich-Schiller University in Jena. I received my doctoral degree in economics at the University of Essex

My main topics are charitable giving, development and labor economics and I have a strong interest in individual decision making. I apply field and laboratory methods to test theoretical predictions.
