Research Interests

I am an applied behavioral economist with interests in development economics and microeconomic theory. My research agenda focuses on exploring how the economic preferences of individuals and groups adapt over time to changes in their environments. In my job market paper, Adaptive Risk Preferences (joint with Daniela Vidart), we study how individual risk attitudes adapt to lifetime experiences of macroeconomic volatility.

I am on the job market in 2019-2020 and will be available for interviews at the ASSA meeting in San Diego and the EEA meeting in Rotterdam.
