Jan Schmitz is an experimental economist. He is interested in why economic actors forgo monetary benefits and behave pro-socially. In his research, he studies social preferences in different (financial) market environments. In particular, he studies pro-social behavior in differing economic conditions (e.g., economic uncertainty and economic inequality) and decision making contexts (financial markets, charitable giving, tax evasion, or environmental decision making). Moreover, Jan is interested in studying how behavioral economic nudges can be used to increase pro-social behavior in different economic settings.
