I have a PhD in Economics from Yale University. I have held academic posts in various US universities and then in the University of Leicester UK since 2008. My research and teaching are broadly in the area of economic theory and particularly in the areas of game theory auctions finance mechanism design industrial organization.


My main research activities so far have been on theoretical research and hence self-funded but I have recently become very interested in experimental economics and consequently in grant applications.
