Welcome to my website!
I am Assistant Professor at Tilburg School of Economics and Management (TiSEM),
My interests lie in the field of experimental and behavioural economics.
Specifically, my projects focus on how simple institutions (e.g. rewarding, punishing, communication), which we use in our everyday life, influence the decision to cooperate or to compete. In many of my studies, I investigate groups in an uncertain environment, which dispose of only a selection of channels for coordination. This model reflects fundamental structures of the environment we face every day, i.e. situations where complete contracts are not feasible. Being a social species, humans have a long history of living in groups (tribal clans, families, cities). The complex character of communal society has shaped psychological mechanisms and heuristics to cope with this environment.
