I am a senior researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich). While being based at the Chair of Cognitive Science, I conduct interdisciplinary research in the domain of financial and risky decision making, risk assessment, behavioural and cognitive underpinnings of market bubbles and crashes and bounded rationality of investors. My studies are based on empirical studies, lab-based and field behavioural experiments, formal modelling and quantitative methods. Before joining ETH Zurich, I completed my Bachelor degree a the University College Utrecht, where I studied interdisciplinary cognitive sciences including, psychology, neuroscience, linguistics and statistical methods, I completed my Master's degree at the University of Edinburgh, Informatics Department, where I focused on Computational Linguistics and Natural Language Processing, and I received my Doctorate from the University of Basel, Center for Economic Psychology. Before joinung the Chair of Cognitive Science, I worked as a post-doctoral reseracher at the Chair of Decision Theory and Behavioral Game Theory and at the Chair of Entrepreneurial Risks. Between my academic appointments, I worked for the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen and in the Financial Modelling team of SCOR re-insurance company.
