Dr. Levent Neyse
Levent Neyse is a researcher in the Market Behavior group at the WZB and the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP) at the DIW, Berlin. Using various methods, such as laboratory and field experiments, household panel studies plus techniques from neuroscience, he studies how social and economic preferences affect decisions in the labor market. His research involves multidisciplinary research questions such as: How do labor market norms and laws affect fairness perceptions in the labor markets? How does economic behavior change in different social situations? What are the impacts of testosterone on decisions and personality? What drives people to be self-employed? In recent years, he has also been working on various replication studies. He holds a BA in economics, an MA in Economic Theory from Istanbul University, and a PhD in Empirical Economics from the University of Granada. He previously worked at the Kiel Institute for the World Economy as a postdoctoral researcher, at the LSE Social Policy department as a guest researcher, and also as a freelance photographer for various media outlets.
