Holger A. Rau
I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Göttingen.
My research interests are Experimental Economics, Social Preferences, Gender Differences and Behavioral Finance. I especially focus on laboratory approaches to analyze the functioning of work incentives and their impact on labor-market phenomena such as the gender wage gap. I am also interested in irrational investor behavior documented by the disposition effect.
