Florian Bersier was a DPhil candidate at the OII, working in the interplay between economics and complex systems. His thesis focused on the design of online reputation systems.

Florian’s research at the OII lay in the interplay between economics and complex systems and was made possible thanks to the support of a Scatcherd European scholarship and an Economic and Social Research Council studentship. His DPhil thesis is entitled “Design of Online Reputation Systems: An Economic Perspective”. Prior to joining the OII, Florian was a student at the École Polytechnique, France.

Beside his academic life, Florian has worked for a number of years as a consultant, a hacker or a researcher for a diverse set of public and private institutions, such as the World Bank, the Swiss Confederation, the London School of Economics, and the Paris School of Economics.
