I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute in Bonn (on leave at UC Berkeley during Fall 2023). I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the European University Institute under the supervision of David K. Levine and Arthur Schram.

I am an applied microeconomist with a focus on political economy and behavioral economics. I study how beliefs, incentives, and institutional structures shape economic behavior and policy outcomes using methods from microeconometrics and experimental economics.

I will be available for interviews on the economics job market this academic year!
