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 earned my PhD (from the Swiss Finance Institute at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) in 2009. I am also a former student from the École Normale Supérieure de la Rue d’Ulm.

Please see my CV for more information.

Off tenure clock during academic years 2011, 2014 and 2016 due to maternity leaves.
