Research Fellow at the Center and Laboratory for Behavioral Operations and Economics (LBOE) at the University of Texas at Dallas
Eugen's research interests center on experimental and behavioral economics with a particular focus on crime and corruption. His most recent work has examined individual deviant behavior and the underlying decision processes under risk and ambiguity as well as the relationship between migration and corruption. During his time as a Visiting Lab Fellow at the Center, he will examine the relationship between higher institutional effectiveness in carrying out convictions at a faster pace and the criminal's inclination to engage in deviant behavior (joint work with Ann-Christin Posten). Eugen is also a research correspondent for Transparency International and is responsible for experimental behavioral economics and migration research.
