I am Associate Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics from the University of Zürich. I have a PhD in Economics and Finance from the University of St. Gallen. My research is interdisciplinary and crosses the boundaries of economics to social psychology, finance, political science, criminology, and biology. I use field and lab experimental methods, often in collaboration with firms, non-profit, and governmental organizations. My current research projects cover topics like unethical behavior and crime, employee motivation, social norms, as well as context-dependence in economic preferences.

I am also a Research Network Affiliate at the CESifo and Associate Editor at the Journal of the European Economic Association.

Various international (e.g., The Economist, BBC, New York Times, Forbes, Le Monde, Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, The New Yorker...) and national (e.g., NZZ am Sonntag, Tagesanzeiger, SRF TV, SRF Radio, Finanz und Wirtschaft, Bilanz...) media outlets have featured my research.
