Sarah Necker studied Economics at the Philipps-University of Marburg and Stellenbosch University (South Africa). Between 2008 and 2014 she was PhD student and assistant at the chair of professor Lars P. Feld, first at the Ruprecht-Karls-University Heidelberg and from September 2010 at the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg. Since 2010 she works as research associate at the Walter Eucken Institute, she is executive research associate since 2016. She visited professor John A. List at the Becker Friedman Institute of the University of Chicago (USA) and the Université de Rennes 1 (France) for several short-term research visits.
In her research she examines the question which monetary and non-monetary factors influence the behavior of individuals. On the basis of empirical (survey data, laboratory and field experiments) and theoretical analyzes, she examines how individuals react to the institutional and social environment and how behavior and attitudes develop over time. The current focus is on the effects of incentive schemes on unethical behavior and the determinants of tax evasion and undeclared work.
