I am a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Cambridge-INET Institute, and completed my PhD at the Toulouse School of Economics.

My research mainly focuses on understanding how individuals make inferences and decisions with limited cognitive ability, and the mechanism behind different behavioral abnormalities. I also build on my studies of individual decision making to draw implications on market and political competition, and welfare analysis of public policies.
