Current research

My research interests span across household finance (portfolio choice, financial risk), behavioral economics (dishonesty, lifetime traumas), economic policy analysis (pension systems, auctions, waste management), and in general applied micro-econometrics.

I am currently editing for Routledge a book titled "Behavioural Economics and the Environment". The call for contributions is available HERE.
