I am a Research Economist at the Web3 Foundation in Zug. I analyze incentives in blockchain markets and in cryptographic protocols.
I am a microeconomist by training. My main interests are in contract theory, contest theory, and auction theory.
I am affiliated with the Zurich Center for Market Design and the Institute of Economics at the University of St. Gallen.
