Summit of Kota Kinabalu mountain, 4.095m. 18/8/2019.


I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Tax Law and Public Finance (Munich). Prior to that, I was a graduate student at the Universidad Carlos III (Madrid), where I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics in 2017.

I am an applied theorist with interests in contests, political economy and bounded rationality.
