Assistant Professor of Economics
Current teaching schedule available on the public course finder.
I teach classes on microeconomics, game theory and behavioral economics, and most of my research is on belief formation and choice under uncertainty. In my research I use empirical methods (often data from sports as a "natural lab") and game theoretic formal analysis. I am especially interested in political media because of the complex psychology and important social and political implications.
