He is a research fellow at IZA in Bonn and a research professor at DIW in Berlin, where he closely collaborates with the group that designs and develops the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP).
His research focuses on three main areas: (1) the nature and economic consequences of preferences, cognitive and non-cognitive skills, (2) the psychology of incentives, (3) personnel economics. In his empirical research he combines experimental methods and econometric techniques, for example to obtain behaviorally relevant measures of preferences and attitudes in large survey data sets.
