Research interests

My research interest lies at the intersection of psychology and economics. In general, I am interested in complex and, hence, ambiguous circumstances which can be self-servingly exploited in choice situations. My most recent interest concerns whether and how one’s history (defined as a prior outcome in a distributive situation) influences his distributive preferences. Specifically, I focus on their self-serving invocations of history when constructing their fairness ideals in a distributive situation. I am also investigating whether bargaining parties with an asymmetric history self-servingly invoke their past when forming their beliefs about the fair settlement, causing bargaining impasse. Or, whether tax evasion is more likely to occur after being underpaid, and the nature and the role of tax moral perceptions in these circumstances. Or, whether the timing of uncertainty resolution is associated with self-serving exploitation of ambiguity in other-regarding preferences. 

My other interest involves finding ways to protect consumers from making biased decisions when deciding to take out a loan to finance goods of which value depreciates over time.
