About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the University of Pittsburgh. I am on the job market this year and will be available for interviews at the 2019 ASSA meetings in Atlanta.

My main area of interest is Behavioral Economics, where I study behvioral biases related to information and feedback, as well as its effects on decision making. In my research I use controlled experiments to study these effects in the labor market.
