    I am a job market candidate and I am currently available for interviews. My research uses experimental economics methods to explore the 
    impact of 
incentives on people with other-regarding preferences. I apply different econometric techniques to explore experimental results 
    such as 
Bayesian mixture models, logistic regressions and hierarchical models.

    In particular, I am interested in intrinsic motivation in the workplace and the willingness to donate labor, i.e. working harder than others for
    equivalent salaries. Most of my work stems from laboratory experiments; however I recently participated in the design and 
implementation
    of a field experiment exploring the impact of children's social environment on their altruistic preferences, especially 
volunteering.
