Hi! I am a behavioural economics PhD candidate at Erasmus University Rotterdam and Tinbergen Institute, under the supervision of Kirsten Rhode and Peter Wakker. My research focuses on time preference, nudge and policy evaluation.

More specifically, I have studied how preferences for correlations play a role in intertemporal risky decision-making; how to design policy intervention to nudge people away from procrastination; whether monetary penalty has deterring effects in school absenteeism. My latest project is about coronavirus and risk deliberation.

From 2021 to 2023, I work as a post-doc researcher at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU Amsterdam) on Covid-19 and Mobility Behaviour in the Netherlands (MOCOLODO).
