Research interests

My current work lies within the MultiTip project (, in which using econometric techniques and experimental interventions, I aim to uncover causal socio-economic mechanisms that govern compliance with fishing regulations in an open access fishery (Lake Victoria, East Africa).


I use behavioral and experimental approaches and complement it with the use of econometrics and a bit of modeling as my primary research tools. I am interested in cooperative behavior, group and network socio-economic dynamics, and in a more general perspective in the way in which prosocial behavior affects the results of market institutions.
