Short presentation

My work lies at the crossroads of political science, psychology and economics. I use natural experiments, field experiments and surveys in naturalistic settings to study the psychology of cooperation and conflict. I lead the Uppsala Peace Lab, a programme on experimental peace and conflict research:
