He is an economist that specializes in environmental economics, particularly the economics of public and political regulation (taxes, pollution permits, and voluntary contributions).

Marc Willinger is Director of LAMETA. His background is on risk and decision analysis. His current research combines environmental economics and experimental economics, with a special focus on the design of policies and incentives schemes applied to social dilemmas (contributions to public goods and common pool resources dilemmas). Recent papers deal with taxation schemes, binding agreements, and contract design under asymmetric information.
