""My passion is to understand what motivates people to use their time and money in a way that benefits society. I also aim to discover how this money and time can be used in the most impactful manner. In my free time, I enjoy playing improvisation theatre and playing the piano.”
I conduct field surveys and field experiments with financial institutions around the globe. I link these data to real-world investment choices. My samples include retail investors, pension fund members, professional investors and millionaires.
I published in journals like The Journal of Finance, The Review of Financial Studies, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
