About Me

I am a PhD candidate at GAEL - Grenoble Applied Economics Laboratory at the University Grenoble Alpes, France.

I explore ways to incentivise households to reduce their energy consumption, at a time when the world is transitioning to renewable energy sources, and when consumers are becoming more aware of their impact on the planet.

On My Thesis

Dynamic pricing and smart meters:
An experimental analysis of household electricity consumption behaviour.

Supervised by Daniel Llerena and Cédric Clastres.

I use methodology from consumer behaviour research and experimental economics in order to analyse household and consumers’ preferences and behaviour with regard to their use of smart meters and dynamic pricing for managing their electricity consumption.

In particular, I look at how consumers behave and adapt in response to the different incentives that can be delivered via a smart meter, with the goal of making residential energy demand more flexible.
