"People respond to incentives. They do not always do so in a rational or selfish way as usual assumed in economic and business theory. Still, economic and business behaviour follows systematic and predictable patterns. Devising descriptively relevant theories of 'real' economic behaviour is one of the most important and most promising challenges in economics, business and neighbouring disciplines. My research agenda is aimed at contributing to the understanding of how human cognition affects economic behaviour through laboratory, field and natural experimental methodologies. It is an interdisciplinary research agenda, involving scientific competences from economics, business research, medical research and cognitive psychology. Finally, the experimental research program is concerned with the transfer of experimental results to the design of economic institutions and to organizational policies".
"A good understanding of how people respond to incentives opens the door to market and strategy design as an engineering science. The goal of much of my recent research is to improve the performance of 'real world' markets and institutions, as well as to optimize individual, business and policy strategies".
