My research is mainly focused in the interaction between finance and psychology. On the side of finance, I am especially interested in understanding collective behavior in asset markets. In particular I use laboratory experiments to investigate two different but related phenomena: Asset Bubbles and Ponzi scheme. In psychology I like to understand how individual characteristics and mental processes can affect people decisions when facing uncertain or risky situations such as trading, starting a new business or negotiating.
