About

I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the University of Southern California.


I am currently a member of the Los Angeles Behavioral Economics Laboratory (LABEL) and was a fellow at the USC Dornsife Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) in the 2014-2015 academic year.


My main research interests are behavioral and experimental economics, inter-temporal preferences (discounting), time perception, haggling, reciprocity and negotiations and behavioral bubble formation models.
