I specialize at the intersection between behavioral finance and labor economics. My work employs modern empirical methods and naturally occurring data to understand: (1) the economic and behavioral factors influencing investor behavior and worker productivity, and (2) how stock market fluctuations affect various aspects of investors' lives. I am also interested in exploring unintended consequences of government policies.
I am on the job market in 2019-20 and will be available for interviews at the FMA 2019 meeting and ASSA 2020 meeting.
