Behavioral Economics, Applied Microeconomic Theory

Biography

My primary fields of interest are behavioral economics and applied microeconomic theory. My research has followed two broad lines of inquiry: (1) self-control through goal-setting and (2) the role of uncertainty in decision-making, in settings such as social interaction, the evaluation of expert advice, and reporting sexual misconduct.
