My research has been published in Games and Economic Behavior, the Journal of Mathematical Economics, Social Choice and Welfare, Economics Letters, the ACM Conference on Economics and Computation, and Mathematical Social Sciences.

It has been widely discussed in international outlets such as the MIT Technology Review, World Economic Forum, New Scientist, Forbes, Financial Times, The Economist, The Times and BBC's Thinking Allowed.
I completed my PhD with Hervé Moulin at the University of Glasgow in 2017 and my MSc at the Vienna Institute for Advanced Studies in 2014.

I have served on the Program Committee for the Royal Economic Society 2024 conference, the Economics and Computation 2023 Conference and the Matching under Preferences 2022 Workshop.
