SUMMARY

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Southern California Department of Economics and a researcher at the Los Angeles Behavioral Economics Laboratory (LABEL), a center dedicated to experimental research on economic decision-making. 

My work focuses on the analysis of individual preferences and choices, as well as understanding how these can be influenced. I utilize economic modeling, statistics and computer programming in my research. 

I will be graduating in spring 2017 and I will be attending the ASSA meeting in Chicago, IL on January 6-8, 2017.
