My research is in the fields of public economics and behavioural and experimental economics. My work focuses on the analysis of individual decision making that has collective interest outcomes, in particular on incentive mechanisms for cooperation in team work and for private contribution to public goods. I am also interested in the analysis of tax evasion, linked to the problem of free-riding and the financing of a public good.
