Max has become fascinated by behavioural economic thinking since the early stages of his Master’s in Economics at LMU Munich. Since then he views his world through the lens of behavioural and experimental economics. His research interests range from how to help the poor overcome their self-control problems using commitment devices, to digital in-app nudges in the private banking sector to improve credit card repayment.
