I am a senior researcher at the ETH Zurcich and an affiliate of the ETH Risk Center. Within the Chair of Cognitive Science, I lead research, teaching and outreach activities of our chair devoted to Behavioral Finance and Beahavioral Economics. In my research, I investigate financial and risky decision making, risk assessment, behavioural and cognitive underpinnings of market bubbles and crashes and bounded rationality of investors and human interaction with new technologies. I have a formal training in Cognitive Science, including psychology, cognitive neuroscience, computational linguistics, AI and statistical and empirical methods. I completed my Bachelor degree a the University College Utrecht and a Master's degree at the University of Edinburgh, Informatics Department.
