In this blog


Christian Zehnder is Full Professor in the Department of Organizational Behavior at HEC Lausanne, University of Lausanne. He obtained a PhD in Economics from the University of Zurich in 2005.

His work seeks to elucidate the driving forces behind economic decisions and to understand how behavioral motives and social considerations affect market outcomes, organizations and institutions. Most of his work can be attributed to the field of “behavioral economics”, a relatively new line of research that combines insights from economics and psychology and examines systematic departures from the standard assumptions in economic models.

Christian Zehnder applies a variety of research tools, including laboratory experiments, field experiments and game theoretic models. His research therefore reflects an ongoing interplay between experimental examinations and advancements in behavioral theory.
