Aree di interesse scientifico

Research Interests

My research spans two streams. in the first stream, I examine how individuals and groups develop new knowledge and skills and how they cope with the challenges associated with this development. I thereby focus on the creation and selection of new ideas as well as on problem-solving as the main processes for developing new knowledge and skills. The challenges I am investigating include cognitive and affective biases, knowledge sharing, and coordination. In the second stream of research, I explore how individual mobility affects cooperative and competitive behavior.
