I am an assistant professor at Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. My research focuses on individual and aggregate behavior in markets. In particular, I am interested in how information is aggregated and transmitted in different market settings such as prediction markets and auctions. I also enjoy to design and run experiments.
