Within my broader research interest, the interplay between motivational and strategic determinants of conflict and negotiation behavior, his research focuses on two areas, namely (1) information exchange in interdependent decision-making, and (2) representative negotiation. My main research focus is ethical decision-making, with special attention to the role of motivational orientations. Additional research interests concern the role of reputation in negotiation and of social identity processes in intergroup negotiation.
