Research Professor at EMLyon

Education :
PHD : CREED, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
HDR : Toulouse School of Economics, France

Previous Positions :
Post Doc : CISA, University of Geneva
Lecturer (Maitre de conference) : Toulouse School of Economics

Research Interests :
My main research interest concerns the influence of emotions and psychological dimensions on economic decision making and behavior. I use economic experiments in combination with psychological methods. In recent years I have been interested in topics related to social ties and social intelligence. For example I have studied situations where players have to decide whether to trust another person and decisions taken by families especially spouses.
