Welcome to my personal website. Feel free to have a look around. I would appreciate if you leave some comments at the bottom of each post.

I am a PhD student at the Berlin School of Economics and affiliated at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin.

I am interested in Applied Micro Theory and Industrial Organization. To be specific, I prefer to analyze firm's behavior and strategy under incomplete information. Sometimes I apply this methodology to the field of International Trade. I am now learning the "language" of Microeconomic theory, as well as the "language" of depicting the economy and the society.
