In my research, I focus on how to enhance and sustain cooperation in social dilemmas. I also study cooperation in the context of leadership, and intergenerational cooperation in the context of climate change.

I also investigate the potential of virtual reality (VR) technology as an experimental tool. Unlike conventional labs, VR labs enable researchers to conduct experiments in naturalistic, context-rich settings, that participants perceive as real. 


At the University of Erfurt, recently I gave lectures in game theory, mathematics and microeconomics for social science students. 

At the RWTH Aachen University, I regularly give a summer school course on lab and VR experiments for master and PhD students.
