In the past, I was an EPA Research Fellow in Behavioral Economics at EnvEcon, a Lecturer (with tenure) in Economics and an Early Career Fellow in Behavioural Science at the University of Stirling, UK. Before that, I was a Research Associate and a Research Fellow at the Evolutionary Economics Group at the Max Planck Institute of Economics, in Jena and a Doctoral Student at the Graduate School "Human Behaviour in Social and Economic Change" also in Jena, Germany.
