I am an applied microeconomist. My research interests lie at the intersection of development and behavioral economics, with most of my current projects focusing on topics related to (digital) financial services, morals, and norms. In my research, I use a variety of data sources, ranging from self-collected survey and experimental data to large representative panel and administrative data sets.
