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.

Please feel free to contact me using my details available on the sidebar. I very much welcome interacting with academics in Finance of course, but also with colleagues in other fields. I am a firm believer that research breakthroughs are greatly facilitated when looking at an issue from multiple perspectives, and I am thriving to work in a multidisciplinary environment.

If you are a finance practitioner in the private sector, please do not hesitate to contact me as well. I am already interacting with practitioners and I would greatly value the opportunity to have your feedback on my results, discuss potential applications, etc.

In short, if you want to discuss, please do get in touch!
