Welcome!

 

Katharina Momsen joined our research group in September 2017 as a Postdoctoral Researcher to Professor Markus Ohndorf.  She completed her PhD in Experimental Economics at the University of Mannheim in summer 2017. Before, she studied Economics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain, and the University of Bayreuth, Germany. Using experimental techniques, Katharina works on research topics from both environmental economics and industrial organization with a focus on consumer behavior. She seeks to detect behavioral patterns in decision-making and identify situations in which consumers may suffer from their bounded rationality. Building on her results, Katharina aims at assessing the potential of regulatory measures to enhance consumer well-being.
