Thank you for visiting my website!

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Economics at McMaster and the McMaster Institute for Research on Aging (MIRA). I am also a member of the McMaster Decision Science Lab (McDSL) and a degree 2 researcher at the Departamento de Economia at the Facultad de Ciencias Sociales, Universidad de la Republica.

My main interests lie in the intersection between health economics and experimental and behavioral economics. My current research focuses on investigating the relationship between health, risk and behavior using different tools, and in particular, experimental methods. I am currently interested in examining the interdependence between individual healthy and unhealthy decisions and in which way they are conditioned by risk preferences and individual and family history. I am also working on several projects on obesity, mental health and flu vaccinations.
