Behavioral and Experimental Economics
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.
