Research Interest

  • Environmental and Natural Resource Economics
  • Sustainable Development
  • Game Theory

My work centers on humans and their inter-relations with the social and natural environment. With the help of the ERC Starting Grant “NATCOOP”, I aim to generate a better understanding of how nature shapes preferences and incentives of economic agents and how this in turn affects common-pool resource management.
