In his dissertation Sebastian provided three contributions to better understand the neurocognitive underpinnings of individual differences in moral decision-making. First, it provides reconciliation of a long-standing debate in the literature on the role of cognitive control in (dis)honesty. Second, he contributed by identifying stable neural markers that can be used to predict individual differences in (dis)honesty. Lastly, Sebastian provided a behavioral paradigm that can be used to inconspicuously measure voluntary, spontaneous and repeated cheating on a trial-by-trial basis in the MRI scanner or while recording EEG.
Consistently ranked in the top of management research centres in Europe, the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM) has created an environment for the development of internationally recognised management knowledge with academic and societal impact since 1998.
ERIM researchers, a community of over 350 management scientists, are focused on the real needs of business and management, and dedicated to produce relevant and excellent research that adds innovative dimensions to management knowledge. ERIM combines publishing in leading academic journals with effective dissemination through research projects and an advanced doctoral programme in business and management for aspiring researchers. Where possible, research is created in conjunction with business.
In his dissertation ‘Cost Allocation in Collaborative Transportation’ Mathijs van Zon considered a centralised horizontal collaboration between logistic service providers that is governed by a third party. He focused on how to determine a stable allocation of the overall cost or profit among the logistic service providers. Second, Mathijs focused on a centralised horizontal collaboration that is not governed by a third party. He studied this setting both analytically and numerically for collaborations in transportation, and provided insights into the value of the quality of an algorithm in collaborations.
