Wojtek Przepiorka is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Sociology at Utrecht University. His research interests are in analytical and economic sociology, game theory, organizational behavior and quantitative methodology.
Professor Przepiorka uses laboratory, field and online survey experiments to investigate how social norms emerge, are enforced and change. For example, he currently investigates how descriptive norms of ICT use affect people’s privacy attitudes and behaviors (with C. Horne, Washington State University), or how the sharing of compromising information about deviant acts can produce trust and cooperation in extra-legal contexts (with D. Gambetta, EUI Florence).
Before moving to the Netherlands, Professor Przepiorka was a research fellow at Nuffield CESS and the Department of Sociology in Oxford. He studied sociology at University of Bern and completed his doctorate at ETH Zurich.
