Bio

My research lies in the intersection between psychology and economics, with a focus on decision making, behavioral ethics, and negotiations.

 

Examining negotiation processes, I study how first offers affect counteroffers and final outcomes in negotiations.

In my (ethical) decision making work, I study the processes and motivation that affects people’s (i) reactions to, and (ii) decisions to be: honest, prosocial, fair, and cooperative.


I employ diverse methods such as incentivized behavioral experiments, meta-analytical tools, eye tracking, and analysis of field data. 

 

Currently I examine how human's interactions with Artificial Intelligence shape their (ethical) behaivor.
