In the last few years I have undertaken a number of projects on individual decision-making under various influences – frames, nudges, narratives, channels of attention and group membership.
The published papers from this line of work are:

I am currently working with Selon Goksel, PhD student at the London Business School, on a project involving the influence of narrative framing on the effectiveness of Bayesian updating. We have run two out of three rounds of experiments and expect to submit results for publication in the Summer of 2021.
I am working with Etienne Danchin, Guillaume Isabel, Arnaud Pocheville, Sabine Noebel and Ricardo Santiago on a project on the effect of social learning on individual decision making, financed by the CNRS. Further details can be found here and here.
I am also working with my PhD student Julia Hoefer on the effect of various treatments on the propensity of social media users to share fake news.
