I study the design and performances of markets and institutions using tools from microeconomics and game theory. My research covers a wide range of applications from the design of assignment mechanisms for students in school districts to the choice of jury selection procedures, all the way to the ability of prediction markets to foster a consensus on the causes of climate change.

Research interests: Microeconomics, Market and Mechanism Design, Behavioral and Experimental Economics
