My research is mainly focused on the analysis of decision-making under risk and uncertainty and choice over time. I was appointed Adjunct Professor at CBS in September 2011 and Professor in July 2013. Prior to joining CBS in July 2013 I was a Professor of Behavioral Finance at Durham University, UK.
