Research Focus

I am a lecturer in economics at Queen's University Belfast. I use theoretical models, data analysis and experiments to analyze social integration dynamics and fair resource allocation.
My research has been published in Games and Economic Behavior, the Journal of Mathematical Economics, 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.
If you are interested in 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.
