I am a Visiting Professor of Economics at the Rady School of Management, UC San Diego and 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 lies at the intersections of economics, social psychology, criminology, political science 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, organizational economics, social norms, as well as context-dependence in economic preferences.

I am also a Research Network Fellow at the CESifo and served as 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.
