Karsten functions as a researcher and project manager at iNudgeyou. His work in iNudgeyou is primarily focused on identifying, preparing and executing a broad range of trials with different stakeholders, such as the Danish Business Authority, Copenhagen Airport, and the Danish Agency for Labour Market and Recruitment.
He is a PhD Fellow at Roskilde University and holds a master’s degree in philosophy from University of Copenhagen and University of California, Irvine (visiting), with special emphasis on behavioral economics, game theory and philosophy of law.
He is fascinated with nudging on both a practical and theoretical level. Practically, in the acknowledgment of how seemingly small interventions can cause major effects. Theoretically, in the realization of how nudges are often multilayered structures, drawing on human psychology (heuristics and biases), constructs (both physical and social) and human interaction (e.g. social norms, beliefs, habits and conventions).
