RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am a behavioral economist doing research mostly in the field of personnel economics.

I am interested in the optimal structure of incentives schemes, specially in the workplace. I am currently working on the efficacy and efficiency of gift exchange, the optimality of high powered incentives, among others.

I graduated from UC Berkeley under the supervision of Botond Köszegi and Matthew Rabin.
