I am a researcher at the Institute for Futures Studies in Stockholm and also affiliated with the Department of Economics at Lund University.
My research interests are in economic theory and experimental economics. My current research explores how individuals’ cognitive limitations affect economic outcomes and the evolution of preferences.
I hold a BSc in Physics (University of Athens) and an MSc in Economics (University of Birmingham). I obtained my PhD in Economics from the University of Leicester in 2016, after which I spent four years at Lund University as a postdoc.
In 2020, I joined IFFS, where I work on the project “The role of internal motivation and external sanctions in supporting prosocial behaviour”, together with Erik Mohlin.
