Welcome to my website! 

I am a post-doctoral researcher at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT) on the ERC Starting Grant project on "Understanding information for legal protection of people against information-induced harms" (INFO-LEG) led by Nadya Purtova.

My research mainly concerns privacy choices in the wake of Big Data. Using behavioral microeconomic modeling as well as laboratory experiments, I focus in particular on the effects of limited strategic sophistication of consumers.
