Research

Game Theory and Behavioral Economics Consultant

I obtained a Ph.D from the Department of Business and Economics at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona

My research is mainly focused in the interaction between finance and psychology using behavioral economics insights.

On the side of finance, I am especially interested in understanding collective behavior in asset markets. In particular I use laboratory experiments to investigate two different but related phenomena: Asset Bubbles and Ponzi scheme.

In psychology I like to understand how individual characteristics and mental processes can affect people decisions when facing uncertain or risky situations such as trading, starting a new business or negotiating.
