About Me

I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Economics, University College Dublin and a Research Fellow at the Geary Institute for Public Policy, where I am a member of the Behavioural Science & Policy Group. I conduct research in behavioral economics, experimental economics and applied microeconomics. In particular, I focus on the effects of self-image, social image, emotions and self-control on decision-making. More recently, I am also interested in studying how information shapes political preferences. I completed my PhD in Economics at Lund University in 2017.
