Assistant Professor of Accounting

WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management

Hi there, I’m Victor!

I am an Assistant Professor at WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management, and I use experimental research to answer accounting-oriented research questions. Recent examples of questions that I tackle with my research are:

  • Why are managers more reluctant to let go of control over their employees than take control over their employees?
  • How can we design performance feedback to motivate underperforming employees?
  • Does performance feedback contribute or inhibit overwork?
  • Do mandated public tax disclosures actually help identify agressive tax avoiders?

I am also a passionate user of oTree, a powerful, python-based platform for behavorial research and experiments. oTree is open-source and easy to learn.
