Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a lecturer in economics (AP) at Queen's University Belfast. My research goals are to understand i) social integration dynamics, and ii) how to fairly divide resources.
If you are interested about my work on online dating, I encourage you to watch this video of a talk I gave at the Gather science and technology festival in Stockholm in 2019.
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.
