research interests

My research lies at the intersection of behavioral and experimental economics and social choice.

My recent projects focus on the value individuals place on procedures of individual and collective choice : freedom of choice, democracy and collective deliberation. I have also projects on individual decision-making in situations of proliferation of choices. Finally, I am also interested in assessing people’s perception of social justice.
