Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics and the Data and Decisions Destination Area at Virginia Tech. Feel free to follow my twitter - for occasional research updates and random commentary

I have broad interests, but most of my research is in decision theory and behavioral economics.


I grew up in southern California and was an undergraduate student in Economics and Mathematics at UC Santa Barbara. I received my PhD in Social Science from Caltech in 2015.
