Research Statement

My research looks at monetary incentives and its effect on subsequent cooperation. I'm particularly interested in social dilemma settings with an ethical dimension. One line of research focuses on public good games with punishment where individuals can lie about their contributions. In another, I look at the effect of different monetary incentives, such as team and tournament schemes, on subsequent cooperation and unethical behaviour. These questions are studied in the controlled setting of an economic experiment.
