I study how individuals apprehend financial risks, by investigating both actual behavior and its neural bases. I use the knowledge and methodological tools of several fields – chiefly experimental economics, financial economics, and computational neuroscience – to better understand why market participants behave the way they do. I do research and teaching in this area.
I am currently collaborating with researchers in Economics, Finance, and Cognitive Neuroscience. I am teaching the Behavioral Finance course at the UNSW Business School from March 2011.
I was also a Visiting Associate at Caltech from 2010 to 2014.
I obtained my PhD in Finance from the Swiss Finance Institute at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne de Lausanne in 2009. Prior to studying Finance at the SFI, I completed the first part of my PhD at the London School of Economics and studied Economics at Princeton University. I also hold a diploma of engineer statistician from the ENSAE, Paris, and graduated from the École Normale Supérieure de la rue d’Ulm in Paris.
