Welcome to my website. I am a research associate at Humboldt University in Berlin and a member of the BDPEMS faculty. I am also a fellow of the Berlin Center for Consumer Policies (BCCP) and a research associate of the Berlin Research Associates Program (BERA). Before that, I worked at Nuffield College (University of Oxford). I hold a PhD from Université libre de Bruxelles (ECARES). I am interested in microeconomic theory, applied to problems in industrial organization, public and environmental economics.
