I am a Scientia Fellow Associate Professor at the UNSW Business School. My research program aims to elucidate how people perceive and react to financial risks, using a combination of theoretical and experimental methods from decision neuroscience, experimental economics, and financial economics. I have been collaborating with top behavioral scientists worldwide, both from North America (Brown University, The California Institute of Technology, Columbia University, and The Wharton Business School) and Europe (Geneva University)
I obtained my PhD in Finance from the Swiss Finance Institute at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. Prior to studying Finance at the SFI, I completed the first part of her 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 Ecole Normale Supérieure de la rue d’Ulm, Paris.
I joined the UNSW Business School in September 2010. I was also a visiting associate at The California Institute of Technology from 2010 to 2013.
