Research Output per year
My research interests are multidisciplinary in nature and derive from (business) economics, organizational psychology, and sociology. Most of my research is empirical and quantitative in nature. Current research topics are:
- corporate governance: the inner working and interaction of top management teams, boards of directors, and works councils;
- decision-making: the application of insights from behavioral economics and social psychology to decision-making in firms.
I participate(d) in a variety of external projects on these topics, e.g. on corporate governance code compliance, executive compensation, board composition, and sustainable decision-making.
