Welcome to my personal homepage. I am an associate professor of economics  (with tenure) at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain. I received my Ph.D. in 2012 from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and an undergraduate degree in economics (Diplom-Volkswirt, equivalent to M.A. in economics) in 2006 from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany. 

I am an applied microeconomic theorist. One main area of my research is the intersection of political economy and the study of digital social networks and their impact on learning and democratic decision making, in particular in the presence of disinformation. The other focus area of my research is the (political) economy of climate change and public good provision under uncertainty. My secondary research fields are personnel economics, industrial organization, and the theory of contests and tournaments.

I am a member of the editorial boards of the Journal of Politics and of Frontiers in Behavioral Economics. Moreover, I am a research associate of the ERC funded  EFFORT Project.
