I aim to have the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

what is going on ?! (last update 14 January 2023)

  • A further paper published: Does trust break even? A trust-game experiment with negative endowments accepted at the Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics., together with Jana Vyrastekova (link).

  • Our paper Füllbrunn, Sascha, Huber, Christoph, Eckel, Catherine C. and Weitzel, Utz, Heterogeneity of Beliefs and Trading Behavior — A Reexamination (Preprint https://ssrn.com/abstract=4141893) has been accepted at JFQA.

  • The handbook of experimental finance is now available (link)

  • I am happy to talk at the Decision making for others conference in Portsmouth in two weeks.

  • I am happy to give a talk at the North American ESA Meeting in Santa Barbara, CA. Next to the paper with Charlotte, I will present the Healthy Brain Study to the ESA community for the first time.

  • I am excited to design and coordinate the new course Societal Challenges in Economics, considering the economics perspective on SDGs and digital transformation and how the latter can address the former. The course is accompanied by several guest lectures related to transformational sustainable change, platform economies, and cybersecurity. Next to the introduction of the course, I will teach Sustainable Finance. I am happy to work together with other teachers who will consider different parts related to our specialisations.

  • Accepted at PLOS ONE! Psychological price perception may exert a weaker effect on purchasing decisions than previously suggested: results from a large online experiment fail to reproduce either a left-digit or perceptual-fluency effect, with Achiel Fenneman, Jörn Sickmann, Carina Goldback and Thomas Pitz.

  • Constantina Markou will start as my first PhD candidate in August. I am looking forward to working with her!

  • I am searching for a new PhD Candidate on Sustainable Finance (link). Deadline October 7th.

  • Finally published: S. Füllbrunn and T. Neugebauer (2022), Testing market regulations in experimental asset markets – The case of margin purchases, Vol 200, 1162-1183, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jebo.2020.09.022.

  • We uploaded a new working paper: Heterogeneity of Beliefs and Trading Behavior - A reexamination, with Christoph Huber, Catherine Eckel and Utz Weitzel. The working paper is available here.

  • We uploaded a new working paper: Reading the Market? Expectation Coordination and Theory of Mind, with Te Bao, Jiaoying Pei, and Jichuan Zong. The working paper is available here.

  • Together with Stefan Trautmann and Wolfgang Luhan, we received a grant from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation to cover travel, accommodation and catering costs for all active participants for our conference on "Risky Decision Making for Others - Cognition, responsibility and risk preferences" planned for October 2022 in Portsmouth.

  • As expected, my PhD Student's Charlotte Borsboom finally made it. Congratulations!

  • The Board of Deans of Radboud University granted me the IUS Promovendi (not-being a full professor I can now have my own PhD student).

  • I just presented "Privatizing Gains and Socializing Losses - Agency under Accountability" at the ASSA meeting in the DMFO session (unfortunately via zoom only). We had interesting talks from Mateo Ploner, Ciril Bosch-Rosa, Homa Zarghamee, and Sandro Ambuehl.

  • Jana Vyrastekova and I submitted our new paper on Trust under Financial Distress. The WP version is available at SSRN (link)

  • The #fincap project's paper "Non-Standard Errors", where Sven Nolte and I formed a research team, has been published at SSRN (link).

  • Our Healthy Brain Study paper "Rationale and design of the Healthy Brain Study: an accessible resource for understanding the human brain and how it dynamically and individually operates in its bio-social context" has been accepted at PlosONE (link to pre-print).

  • Charlotte Borsboom and I submitted our new paper. The WP version is available at SSRN (link)

  • Want to see me in action? Here is our Master's Programme Promotion Video... guess who is taking the role of the professor?!
