Biography

I work in Microeconomic Theory. My research lies in the field of bounded rationality, contract theory and industrial organisation.I received my PhD from the University of Leicester in 2016, where I was supervised by Prof. Chris Wallace and Dr. Subir Bose. My work focuses on studying how the results of classical economics are affected by the presence of individuals who suffer from behavioural biases, such as naïveté, temptation and self-control or overconfidence. I work mainly in principal-agent modelling. For a full overview of my research, please follow the link to my personal website above. In 2015-2016 I was awarded the Royal Economic Society Junior Fellowship.  In the fall of 2015 I was a Lecturer at the University of Leicester, where I taught my own course in Mathematics for Economics. Also at Leicester, I have been a Teaching Assistant and Tutor from January 2013 to July 2016
