I am a professor in Economics at Queen Mary University of London, CEPR fellow and research associate at the University of Adelaide. My main research interests are in economic theory, with a particular emphasis on mechanism and information design, and revealed preferences. I was a member of the sub-panel 16 for Economics and Econometrics at the REF2021. It was an interesting experience, albeit time-consuming (with obvious consequences on my research time). I am also a keen runner and enjoy food, wines and other spirits. Last updated: September 2022.

Four axioms for a good collaboration: The four axioms for a good collaboration of Hardy and Littelwood. (From "Littlewood's miscellany," edited by Bollobas.) Axiom 1: When one author writes to a co-author, it is completely indifferent whether he is right or wrong. Axiom 2: When one author receives a letter (e-mail, nowadays) from a co-author, he is under no obligation whatsoever to read it, let alone to answer it. Axiom 3: It is preferable that each author works on different parts (aspects) of the research project. Axiom 4: It does not matter who contributes what.
