About Angela C. M. de Oliveira

My research interests lie in the field of behavioral public economics – or in incorporating non-standard assumptions into the economic analysis of the public sector. More broadly, I am interested in what makes decision makers different from each other, also known as individual heterogeneity. I use experiments to examine these differences. Many factors influence the choices that people make, like context, norms, or social preference types. I investigate which factors robustly impact behavior and am interested in mapping which ones are informative for public policy.
