Andrej Woerner

Welcome to my website!

I am a PhD candidate at CREED, University of Amsterdam and Tinbergen Institute. My supervisors are Prof. Arthur Schram and Prof. Sander Onderstal. My research interests include applied mechanism design, behavioral economics and experimental economics.

In my job market paper, I introduce the matched-bet mechanism. The matched bet is an easily applicable and strictly budget-balanced mechanism that aims to help people overcome time-inconsistent behavior. I show that the matched-bet mechanism has desirable theoretical properties. In a field experiment on exercising, I show that the matched bet is also an effective mechanism in practice.
