Main Research Interests

I am interested in the importance of other-regarding preferences for economic behavior. In general, I am using field and laboratory experiments to explore corresponding research questions from the areas of personnel and labor economics, public economics and law. My current research mainly focuses on the following two fields:

  • Incentives and Motivation (not only) at the Workplace

  • Cooperation, Sanctions and Norms
