Philipp Sadowski's work focuses on microeconomic theory, decision theory and behavioral economics. A central research interest is to better understand the interaction between observable economic behavior and the often not directly observable formation of beliefs. Topics include subjective learning, rational inattention, changing tastes, and other-regarding motives such as shame and magical thinking. Philipp's research has been published in leading journals, presented internationally, and supported by the National Science Foundation.
