Hi there, my name is Sascha Füllbrunn.

I am an Associate Professor of Finance at Radboud University in Nijmegen (the Netherlands). I like to run experiments using the method of Experimental Finance/Economics. I am part of the Institute for Management Research, and fall under the Department of Economics and Business Economics and even more particular I am part of the Chair in Finance. I am teaching Bachelor and Master students at the Nijmegen School of Management.

Best, Sascha

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

(More information) I must say that it is really interesting to work with people from other disciplines.
