Professor of Microeconomics and Experimental Economic Research and Chairman of the Department of Economics at the University of Zürich, Switzerland

I am interested in the social and biological foundations of human personality, which includes the study of interventions in early childhood to improve children’s executive function and in the design and engineering of incentives, institutions and social norms that improve human welfare.

I want my research to shape both future research and future practice in organizations and societies.
