I am a behavioral marketing researcher and a postdoc at the Center for Adaptive Rationality (ARC) at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin.

My research primarily focuses on consumer behavior in online environments, currently pertaining to misinformation and microtargeting.

Prior to my current position, I conducted my doctoral research in Psychology at ARC. I also earned a Master of Behavioral and Decision Sciences (University of Pennsylvania), an MSc in Marketing with distinction (Trinity College Dublin), and a BA in Business Administration (Provadis School of International Management and Technology).

My research has appeared or is forthcoming in journals such as Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, Current Opinion in Psychology, and Nature Human Behaviour.
