I am a postdoctoral researcher in economics at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.

My research focuses on various aspects of environmental political economy, including the role of trust in cooperative behavior, the adoption of green behavior and technologies, and the effect of broadband internet and fossil-fuel communication efforts on ‘fact-resistant’ convictions such as climate change denial.
