Welcome!

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Markets and Strategy at WU Vienna University of Economics and Business (Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien) doing research in the field of Behavioral and Experimental Economics and Finance. Applying the tools of experimental economics, I work on a number of topics relating to financial markets, such as issues regarding market efficiency and bubbles, decision-making under uncertainty, and (un)ethical behavior.

I am also Research Associate at the Economic Science Laboratory of the University of Arizona.
