About Me

I am a PhD student at CREED (Amsterdam School of Economics) since September 2015 under the supervision of Theo Offerman and Matthijs van Veelen. I am interested in Psychological and Epistemic Game Theory, Evolutionary (Game) Theory, and Judgement and Decision-Making. I find projects in these areas most interesting if theories come back-to-back with experimental testing and measurement.

My work can broadly be divided into two lines of research: 1) the foundations of psychological mechanisms and 2) the evolution of cooperation.

Since July 2015, I am a member of the EpiCenter (Research Center for Epistemic Game Theory) at Maastricht University.

In October 2018, I will join the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences at the University of California, Irvine as a postdoctoral scholar.

I graduated from the Tinbergen Institute's MPhil in Economics program. I did my undergraduate in Management, Philosophy and Economics at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. My undergraduate supervisors were Hartmut Kliemt and Bernd Lahno.
