Matthias Wibral

Associate Professor Microeconomics & Public Economics

Matthias Wibral is an Associate Professor at Maastricht University’s School of Business and Economics. He works in the fields of Behavioural Economics and Finance, Neuroeconomics, and Organisational Economics. His research focuses on understanding economic and psychological aspects of decision making and how they influence the functioning of institutions. This includes work on the design of compensation schemes or online reputations systems, determinants of organ donation attitudes and behaviour, as well as on how individuals deal with risky financial decisions. A second line of research investigates the biological basis of cognitive biases and economic preferences. These research questions necessarily call for an interdisciplinary approach that exploits the complementary nature of different empirical methods such as laboratory experiments, survey data, functional magnetic resonance imaging, or pharmacological studies.
