I am an economist working on topics in applied microeconomic theory and currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Aix-Marseille School of Economics. Having obtained my PhD in 2018 at the London School of Economics, I worked as a consultant applying game theory to procurement problems and negotiations before joining AMSE.

My research focuses on the economic importance of interactions within and across groups in organizations, markets and other social contexts. For example, one of my current projects investigates how the membership structure of (social) groups is shaped by the desire for (social) status among the members. A second projects focused on perception mistakes in decision making. It explores how different perception errors interact and affect the welfare of decision makers.
