Short Presentation

I am a PhD student with a broad interest in economics. The main focus, however, is on applied microeconomics and the use of experimental methods to provide causal evidence to questions of general concern. Recent work investigates the role of social influence on economic decision-making. The academic year 2010/2011 I visited U.C. Berkeley, invited by Stefano DellaVigna. Before joining the PhD program at Stockholm University in 2008, I worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Industrial Economics.
