Nora Szech

Nora Szech engages in market and institution design, theoretically and empirically, in order to render institutions sustainable. She combines traditional and behavioral insights in order to understand how agents behave. In many markets, e.g. in health markets, patients do not necessarily understand quality, they may follow heuristics instead. In other markets, participants may prefer to ignore consequences of their activities in order to keep a positive self-image.
