I am a Reader (Associate Professor) at the Department of Economics, City University London.

My primary area of research up to now has been in auction experiments, models of bounded rationality and applied game theory.



Recently, I spent some time visiting CESS, Department of Economics, New York University.

My previous job was as a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Economics, University of London, Royal Holloway.

From 2007 until 2009 I have worked at the Ohio State University as a post doctoral researcher with John Kagel.

My doctoral research was done at the Bonn Graduate School of Economics, under Reinhard Selten.

While in graduate school I spent my second year (2004-2005) visiting the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (as part of the European Doctoral Programme) and working with Rosemarie Nagel.


My undergraduate studies were also in Economics at the University of Bonn from 1999 to 2003. I spent my last year visiting the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. My Diplomarbeit (similar to a master's thesis), done under Benny Moldovanu, was an experimental study about auctions with resale.
