I am a fourth year PhD student in Economics.
In my research, I enjoy to take on intriguing questions from different fields which have economic relevance and study them in the lab and field using insights and practices from experimental economics.
I am currently a visiting PhD Student at Harvard University where I am part of the great Econ CS group on an inivitation from Professor Yiling Chen.

Work in Progress
Advice seeking and determinants of the decision to use advice are important to understand in order to form a theory of what drives men and women to speak up and how their ideas are spread.
If advice is only sought from one group in society new ideas are unlikely to develop. Furthermore the group that is not influential, from whom advice is neither sought nor used, might feel unwelcome or disconnected. Why speak up if your opinion doesn't count?
In this project we examine gender differences in advice seeking and influence in the lab.

Prediction Markets for Science:
In a series of studies, we investigate whether prediction markets are useful in predicting the reproducibility of scientific results. I am involved in the behavioral economics replication project and the second open science reproducibility project. This is joint work together with several other collaborators, please refer the websites for a complete list.
