Market Photos

The photos in the header and footer show the market San Felipe de Jesús, largest street market in Latin America. I take it to be a prime example of institutions that evolve spontaneously, without human design. The photos were taken by Rudy Alvarez.


Jointly with Stefan Wallaschek, I won the PPE Young Scholars Award 2020, awarded by the Institute for Social and Institutional Change at Witten/Herdecke University. The award goes to young scientists who are contributing to the methodological and thematic diversity within and across economics, political science, and philosophy with new ideas and approaches.


I received a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics in 2019. I count myself lucky I was in a cohort with Christina Easton, Todd Karhu and David Kinney, and supervised by Luc Bovens and Bryan Roberts.
