I am a Senior Research Associate at the Department of Economics at the University of Zurich.
I am an applied microeconomist, with interests in behavioral economics, political economy, public economics, and labor economics. My most recent work sheds lights on the determinants of redistributive preferences, on the effects of institutions on norm enforcement and cooperation, and on the effects of social comparisons on productivity and stress.
I study these topics using state-of-the-art experimental methods, large-scale surveys with nationally representative samples, and administrative or historical data.
For Bachelor and Master students writing a thesis with me, please read these guidelines.
