In 2007 he received his PhD from the University College London (UCL) and in 2017 his Habilitation from the European University Viadrina. He worked at the Max-Planck Institute for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition in Berlin on experiments on adaptive strategy selection and supported the LESSAC research team at ESC Dijon on experiments in consumer behavior as well as giving classes in statistics and organization management. Currently he is working for a DFG (German Science Foundation) project on threshold public goods at the Microeconomics Department of the Viadrina University and is teaching at the Brandenburg Medical School. Research interests include, among others, matching markets and price bargaining, social motives and learning, cognitive heuristics and strategy selection. Publications of his appeared in international journals such as the Journal of Socio-Economics, Journal of Experimental Economics, Journal of Applied Cognitive Psychology, European Accounting Review, Review of Economic Design, Economica, International Journal of Game Theory, Revstat, and Kyklos (with an h-index of eleven and in total more than 1,000 citation counts on Google Scholar).
