About me

I have just finished my PhD at Erasmus School of Economics in behavioral decision theory and experimental economics. My Behavioral Economics group is here.

I am starting a joint UCLA/CCRI post-doc with Craig Fox and Chris Trepel in September 2013.


Computational statistics and data analysis with primary focus on Bayesian hierarchical modeling. Foundations of statistics and extensions of Bayesian inference. Behavioral modeling under risk and uncertainty. Behavioral finance. Programming paradigms.

I am a happy user of Emacs, which I use for 90% of my work – code and LaTeX, reading mail and news, organizer and many other things.

In Progress
