Research Interests: 

My research interests are focused on collective action problems and collective behavioral patterns established in our societies. Currently I am working on the dynamics of social and moral norms, by analysing (1) the key concept of "joint commitment" and (2) the relationship between normative reasons (field of ethics) and motivating reasons (field of moral psychology), both responsible for giving reasons to act.
