Personal profile

Research interests

Most of my research focuses on the consequences and experience of envy, inequality, and (financial) decision making. I explore what envy feels like and what its consequences are, and how people respond to ineqaulity (from a psychological perspective).

Various research projects deal with financial and consumer decision making: the effects of greed on consumption and spending, effects of ownership or emotions on product valuation, and the psychologicla effects of microtransactions in computer games.
