I am a researcher with primary interest in topics at the intersection of Economics and Psychology. Besides that, my published and ongoing research includes contest games, innovation and entrepreneurship. Methodology-wise, I am flexible between formal modelling and the designing and analysis of laboratory as well as survey experiments. I also enjoy working on metanalysis and review studies.
