Xavier Gassmann

Young behavioral economist specialized in decision making under uncertainty. I have experience working on different domains, mainly energy and agricultural economics. I like to understand human behavior and especially how to make them adopt more eco-friendly alternatives, like reducing pesticides usage or buying energy efficient technologies.
