About Me


Welcome to my home page!

I am an Associate Professor of Finance at the Department of Finance, School of Business and Economics, Maastricht University.

I am also an Associate Fellow at Nuffield College, the University of Oxford, and Director of the CESS – CHINA, which is a collaborated experimental centre between Nuffield College (Oxford, UK) and Nankai University Institute of State Economy (Tianjin, China).

From 2014 to 2017, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Economics and Nuffield College, University of Oxford, and Associated Researcher at the Centre for Experimental Social Sciences (CESS)- Nuffield. Before that, I received a PhD degree in Economics from Claremont Graduate University (CA, USA) in 2014.

My research mainly focuses on behavioral and experimental finance/economics.

Prof. Raymond Duch and I are doing an online survey experiment in multiple countries to study the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on people’s economic and social behaviour. Please find our pre-registration here. Please find the GitHub repository of our project here.
