Before joining the University of Twente, I held the position of Lecturer in Finance and Accounting at the Department of Economics, Finance, and Accounting at the University of Leicester. 


My research is embracing human decision making and information processing under uncertainty and risk. My current research interests are in the area of behavioural finance and investments.

Some of my current research projects are: decision-making and risk preferences in investment related choices, agents' expectations and asset price formation, mathematical models of contextual preferences.

 In 2019 I received a BA/Leverhulme Small Research Grant to conduct experiments related to financial decision making.
