Research Interests

I am a behavioral economist with interests in macroeconomics, development economics, and microeconomic theory. My research agenda focuses on studying how individual and group decision-making, particularly in the domains of risk and time, adapt over time to changes in their environments. In my job market paper, Adaptive Risk-Taking: Theory and Evidence from Developing Countries (joint with Daniela Vidart), we study how individual risk-taking for individuals in developing countries adapts 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.
