Prof. Dr. Christiane Schwieren

My current research focuses on two broad areas: Decision making and self-regulation under stress and/or change and diversity and individual differences in labor market settings. Methodologically, I mainly use (lab and field) experiments, but recently also did some survey research and I do have one purely theoretical paper.
Other topics I have been working on are public good games, identity, framing, trust, and some contributions to experimental methods.
