I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Purdue University. I received my PhD from the Department of Economics at the University of Amsterdam and the Tinbergen Institute.
My research interests lie in the fields of behavior, experimental, organizational, personal, and labor economics. My main focus is on the role of social and moral preferences in economic decisions. In particular, I consider the mechanisms underlying cooperation, reciprocity, fairness, and deception. I investigate the effect of pro-social behavior and the interplay of formal and informal incentives on effort and motivation in organizations. I also focus on the study of gender differences in economic decisions and the role of nature and nurture. Recently, I have been working on digital piracy from the perspective of behavioral economics.
