Opinion Dynamics

 In various context, I study prosocial behavior. I study the impact of foreign language use on cooperation behavior and the relationship between various occupational interests (e.g., Public Servce Motivation, entrepreneurship, working for multinational firms) and prosocial behavior (interms of contributions to a public good and variations of the dictator game).
