Dr. Helena Maria 

Start: About me


I am a behavioral and experimental economist and finished my doctoral studies in Economics in 2017 at the University of Innsbruck. I hold a Master's degree in Applied Economics and a Bachelor's degree in Management and Economics from the same university.

After working as a Post-Doc (Assistant-Professor) at the University of Innsbruck for almost four years, I started in autumn 2020 to work in a similar position at the University of Regensburg. 

Then, it was time to move on again: I am very excited about having joined the University of Exeter in September 2022. 

Currently, I am a guest editor for the Journal of Economic Psychology (Special Issue on Biological Foundations of Economic Decision Making) and an Editorial Board Member of the Sports Economic Review.


Moreover, I am delighted to support the University of Exeter Business School as the Departmental Research Ethics Officer for Economics.
