Available for postgraduate supervision


I am a lecturer at Cardiff Business School. My research interests fall into the fields of Behavioral and Experimental Economics. I study human behavior in various contexts with the help of laboratory, survey, and field experiments. To keep my research policy relevant, I periodically collaborate with government institutions in different countries (e.g., Armenia, China) and international development organizations (e.g., KfW, UNDP, IOM).  

I obtained my Ph.D. in Behavioral and Experimental Economics at the Graduate School of Economics and Management at the University of Venice, Italy. I received MA in Quantitative Economics (double degree) from the University Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, France, and the University of Venice, Italy.
