I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Stavanger Business School. I've finished my Ph.D. in May 2020 at WU - Vienna University of Economics and Business. You can find my personal homepage here.

I am affiliated with Synapse Lab, an interdisciplinary research lab with a focus on interventions for promoting motivation and learning in education and work-life, where I organize the Synapse Lab Research Seminar.

My interests lie in behavioral and experimental economics, and more specifically in individual decision making. In my thesis, I discuss behavioral motives to work hard, like intrinsic motivation, overconfidence, or grit. More recently, I am engaged in field experiments and policy projects in the area of educational interventions.
