Ek, Claes

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

His 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 he is 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?
