New PhD student!

Natalie has joined the research group in March 2018 as a PhD Student to Assoc.-Prof. Esther Blanco. Before that, she has studied “Economics and Business Administration” for my bachelor degree at the University of Tübingen, Germany, and completed her master degree in “Applied Economics” at the University of Innsbruck.

Here is a self-description of her research she aims to undertake in our group:

"My research focuses on environmental economics using experimental methods. The general objective of my PhD research is to analyse the relevance of institutional and contextual factors related to transfer mechanisms between public good providers and users on the contribution of public goods. With my research I aim at identifying critical design attributes of incentive-based programs such as payments for ecosystem services, for example, that have the potential to promote cooperation and mitigate within- and between-group free-riding."
