I study decision making in social and individual contexts. My research applies an integrative perspective, combining psychology and economics. I use paradigms from experimental economics to understand the psychological processes that underlie decision making.
I study questions/topics, such as:
1. The role of self-control in achieving reciprocity (negative and positive), cooperation, trust, honesty, etc.
2. How do emotion and emotion regulation affect cooperation, trust and reciprocity in strategic contexts?
3. How is coordination in groups achieved and which factors hinder coordination?
4. How do fairness preferences change with age?
5. How can cooperation in social dilemmas and in negotiation be learned and which factors affect this learning?
I also study more applied questions such as:
1. Decision making in configuration tasks (e.g., how to assign workers to shifts).
2. Examinees' risk taking behavior in multiple choice questions
3. The effect of risk perception on the reluctance to be vaccinated
