I am a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics of Tilburg University and a guest researcher at CREED (Center for Research in Experimental Economics and Political Decision Making) at the University of Amsterdam. Previously, I was a post-doc at the CREED at the University of Amsterdam and an Assistant Professor at the University of Manchester. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from CentER Graduate School, at Tilburg University.

I am a behavioral economist interested in combining theory and experiments to study diverse topics. In one line of research, I study how to optimally design incentive schemes in competitive environments utilizing different instruments (monetary awards, relative performance rankings, information disclosure) to boost performance or spur innovation. I also have an interest in organizational economics focused on discrimination and gender differences. In another line, I explore how coordination and cooperation are affected by information demand, communication availability, and strategic environment in markets and social dilemma situations. Relatedly, I study information design in a marketing setting focused on sustainable consumption using field experiments.

Research Interests: Behavioral and Experimental Economics, Game Theory, Organizational Economics, Economics of Innovation and Sustainability, Industrial Organisation
