I am an environmental economist based at the London School of Economics, where I lead the International Environmental Negotiations Programme. In addition to my Assistant Professor position at LSE (Associate from August 2017), I am also an Associate Researcher at FEEM, a member of the LSE Behavioural Science Hub, as well as a member of the Levin Lab at Princeton University and an International Fellow of the Sogang Experimental Economics Laboratory in Korea.

Current research interests: Game theory; International environmental agreements; Experimental Economics; Coupled socio-ecological system; Cooperation

My research spans several topics in environmental economics, primarily related to overcoming behavioural and political economy barriers to cooperation in the (climate) commons. This is tackled through a combination of non-cooperative and evolutionary game theory models, as well as laboratory experiments, surveys and simulations, in an effort to shed light on the potential solutions to environmental dilemmas. Particular attention is given to threshold effects and tipping points in catalysing (or hindering) cooperation.
