Welcome. I am Assistant Professor at IÉSEG School of Management, in the Department of Economics and Quantitative Methods. I received my PhD in Behavioral Economics from Erasmus University of Rotterdam, where I learned theories of decision making and behavioral research methods from my advisers, Peter Wakker and Martijn van den Assem.

My research centers around individual and organizational decisions under risk and ambiguity, with emphasis on climate change uncertainty, sustainability, and problems of collective action and cooperation. I am curious about the role of beliefs, values, and communication in such decisions – how beliefs are formed and updated, how values are shaped, and how people make (or fail to make) tradeoffs between competing values in such decisions – aiming, ultimately, to identify information and incentive structures that lead to better decisions.
