I am a postdoc since May 2016. Before joining University of Copenhagen, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for European Economic Research (ZEW).  I obtained my Ph.D in Environmental and Resource Economics from the University of Copenhagen in 2015. My research interests are in environmental and natural resource economics, behavioral and experimental economics, and development economics with a particular focus on incentives, institutions, and behavior in commons management, consumption goods, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

Current Research: I am currently working on a project that aims at investigating alternative governance and monitoring institutions among forest user groups in Ethiopia in a randomized control trial.

Teaching:  Advanced Development Economics; The Economics of Climate Change; Environmental and Natural Resource Economics
