I am currently associate professor at Nottingham. Before joining Nottingham as a lecturer in 2007, I was a researcher then lecturer at the European University Viadrina (2002-2007), and a tutor and research assistant at the University of Oxford (2000-2002).

My research involves behavioral economics and game theory. I work primarily on individual preferences, strategic reasoning, and group interaction in situations involving coordination, cooperation and conflict. Applications of interest include bargaining, contracts, competition, charity and public good contributions.

I have published in journals such as American Economic Journal: Microeconomics, Economics Letters, Economic Theory, Experimental Economics, Games and Economic Behavior, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Journal of Economic Psychology, and Southern Economic Journal.
