Welcome to my website!
I am currently a researcher at the Ettore Bocconi Department of Economics, Bocconi University, a senior research fellow at the Center for Research on Energy and Environmental Economics and Policy (IEFE) and a visiting researcher at Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM). My current research looks at how risk and uncertainty plays into individual economic decision making and climate change policy making processes (ERC Grant - RISICO).
Previously, I worked on common pool resource and transnational biodiversity conservation topics. I consider myself an applied microeconomist, specializing in topics on environmental and natural resource economics and primarily using experimental economics methodologies. I have experience conducting laboratory and artefactual field experiments.
I received my PhD in Economics at the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa, my Masters in Economics at the University of the Philippines, Diliman and my Bachelor of Science Major in Management Engineering at the Ateneo de Manila University. Prior to pursuing a PhD in Hawai`i, I worked as a consultant for the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank. I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Copenhagen for two years.
