I am interested in industrial organization and finance, with antitrust applications. Much of my work focuses on cartel recidivism and damages, banking infringements, and managerial incentives.

I am currently a Lecturer in the College of Business in T.U. Dublin (since 2017), affiliated Faculty at Stockholm School of Economics (since 2017) and an External Expert at the Central Bank of Ireland (since 2/2024).

I hold a Ph.D. from Trinity College Dublin + Johns Hopkins University (2013) and a Double M.Sc. in Economics from the Université Catholique de Louvain and Católica Lisbon (2009). 

I previously worked at the Italian Competition Authority (AGCM) and the Portuguese Water and Waste Regulator (ERSAR).

Ph.D. position available: "Optimizing market regulation and its enforcement"
