  • Profile

    I am a postdoctoral researcher at CREED, the Center for Research in Experimental Economics and political Decision making of the University of Amsterdam. My main interests are experimental economics and behavioral economics.

    I have a research master in Neuroeconomics from Maastricht University, with a particular focus on experimental economics, behavioral economics and virtual reality. My PhD project aimed to improve individual flood-preparedness by finding the determinants of individual decisions to invest in flood damage mitigation measures. 

    Currently, I am working in the team of Shaul Shalvi on a project studying the importance of trust in the sharing economy.
