The economic decisions people make are constantly influenced by psychological processes. I am interested in these psychological processes and specifically focus on the effects of emotions on economic decision-making. People may make rational or irrational decisions on the basis of their own emotions, but are also influenced by the emotional expressions of others. This knowledge can be used to help people make better economic decisions.
By applying the scientific knowledge on the influence of emotions on economic decisions in practice, I hope to protect people from making unwise decisions.
