Om Claes Ek

I am a postdoc at the Department of Economics and am affiliated with the Centre for Collective Action Research at the University of Gothenburg. I obtained my PhD from Lund University in September 2016.

My main research interests are in the intersection between environmental and behavioral economics, with a particular focus on individual pro-environmental and prosocial behavior. One of the issues I am interested in is whether policies to encourage a particular prosocial activity spills over onto other activities - for example, if local government incentivizes recycling, will people become more or less inclined to buy organic food or bike to work?
