Johannes Jaspersen's Homepage
I am an assistant professor in behavioral decision-making and insurance at the Munich School of Management at LMU Munich. As an applied business economist and decision scientist, I consider theoretical and experimental questions with applications to insurance, health economics, decision analysis, risk theory and national security. While much of my research falls into the broad category of behavioral economics, I also have projects in more classical theoretical settings.
This is my Google Scholar page.
This is where I work.
