I am a job market candidate in the Department of Economics at UC San Diego. My research is primarily focused on the fields of contract theory and behavioral economics. In contract theory, I study settings in which a principal faces realistic barriers to contracting, such as the inability to make payments or commit to future actions. In behavioral economics, I confront models' predictions with evidence directly, studying which model is the most useful to understand an individual's behavior.
