I am a Lecturer in Economics at the SSEES of the University College London. Before moving to academia, I was a practicing tax accountant, tax consultant, and tax policy advisor to public bodies, non-government organisations, and the World Bank. The combination of practical and academic expertise that I gathered over my career gave me a realistic understanding of business and economy.


Game theory with particular interest in algorithmic game theory and communication games on networks.

Working papers:

Farsighted cheap talk in networks
