His research interests are Macroeconomics and Experimental and Behavioral Economics. In the growing field of Experimental Macroeconomics, he focuses on bounded rationality and limited reasoning as an important driver of macroeconomic behavior. His second research area deals with the role of cooperation, ethics and corruption. He developed classEx, a tool for interactive classroom and lab-in-the-field experiments with mobile devices and LIONESS Lab – a tool for online experiments. Those tools enable instructors and researchers to use experiments outside of the lab and for teaching economics. classEx and LIONESS are used in over 50 countries around the world.
