I am a job market candidate in the Department of Economics at UC San Diego. My current area of research is in behavioral economics, decision theory, and network economics. In behavioral economics and decision theory, I primarily study decision making in situations where there are multiple criteria to evaluate the available options and aim to address some of the empirically documented anamolies, such as the randomness of choices and context-dependence. I also study stochastic choice in dynamic environments, where choices are made over option sets (menus), rather than individual items. In network economics, I study the effect of the heterogeneity of agents on the structures that arise in the network, both from the standpoint of efficiency and stability.
