About me:

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and a recent Ph.D. of the Cornell University Department of Economics. My primary fields of interest are behavioral economics, public economics, and applied econometrics. The aim of my research is to facilitate the use of psychological models and psychological data in field and policy applications. For example, my job market paper explores how models of loss aversion can be used to better understand our response to taxation. Another line of research assesses the use of happiness or subjective well-being data in economic settings. See my research page for more details.
