I am a scholar and lecturer of public administration with a hot love for behavioral economics and strategic management, specialized in quantitative-experimental and qualitative mixed-methods research. Specifically, my research interest lies in issues of sustainable public management under risk (uncertainty & complexity), fallacies of dysfunctional collaboration across sectors, and the micro-foundations of organizational corruption. For instance, I research the psychological effects of public sector idiosyncrasies on individuals’ strategic choice – i.e. in situations of negotiation and accountability – to find out why, too often, public-private partnerships fail and what can be done about it.
Currently, I am conducting a multi-national study to reveal the micro-foundations of public sector corruption and institutional deviance (CorPuS).
- Public sector corruption and motivation.
- Public-private partnerships, trust, and public sector negotiation.
- Strategic management and leadership under risk and complexity.
- Law and economics of policy, higher education, and consumption.
- Behavioral public administration; experimental and psycho-physiological research methods.
