I am a professor of economics at Tel Aviv University and University College London, specializing in economic theory.

My recent research interests include: decision making under flawed causal reasoning, the role of narratives in politics and economics, markets with boundedly rational consumers, and incentive issues arising from interactions with platforms and algorithms.
