About Me

I work on microeconomic theory, in particular market design and game theory,
using both theory and empirics.

Currently, I am a 3rd year PhD student at the Universities of Zurich & Grenoble-Alpes, and a member of the Zurich Center for Market Design. My supervisors are Heinrich Nax and Bary Pradelski.

I hold a BSc (2018) and an MSc (2019) in Mathematics from ETH Zurich (5.99/6.00 GPA). I received the ETH medal for my work on optimal clearing schedules in dynamic markets, and the award for the best teaching assistant at the Department of Mathematics. In 2020, I was selected for the Excellence Program of the UZH Digital Society Initiative, where I graduated in 2022.

I was fortunate to bring my research to application at Orderfox (matching platform for industrial manufacturing) and at the Academic Sports Association Zurich (ASVZ).
