I am a Post-doctoral researcher for the European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) and I work for the Climate-KIC. My current projects relate to food security and agricultural sustainability in developing countries.

My PhD thesis was on the insurance of industrial and natural disasters. This work has lead me to appreciate the importance of the distributional choices societies make and to investigate issues related to development, inequalities, and theories of justice.
