Dr. Helena Maria 

Start: About me


I am a Senior Lecturer at the University of Exeter, specializing in behavioral and experimental economics. Since 2023, I have also proudly assumed the role of WIFO Associate. In addition to my academic roles, I am an editorial board member for the Sports Economic Review.


Besides, I actively contribute to the academic community as the Departmental Research Ethics Officer at the University of Exeter Business School. I am recognized as an expert by the Economics Observatory and find fulfillment in mentoring through The Women in Economics Initiative.


My academic journey culminated in completing my doctoral studies in Economics at the University of Innsbruck in 2017. I hold a Master's degree in Applied Economics and a Bachelor's degree in Management and Economics, both earned at the same institution. Following a position as an Assistant Professor at the University of Innsbruck, I continued to enrich my experience in a similar position at the University of Regensburg before joining the University of Exeter in 2022.
