I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Melbourne, Australia. My research interests include Applied Microeconomic Theory, Market Design, Matching Theory and Mechanism Design. My supervisors are Simon Loertscher, Claudio Mezzetti and Jun Xiao. I previously studied at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, where I completed my Master’s Thesis under the supervision of Bettina Klaus.

I am on the Job Market this year. I am available for interview at the SEA Simposio (Barcelona, Dec. 14-16), the RES Conference (London, Dec. 19-20), and the ASSA Meeting (Philadelphia, Jan. 5-7).
