Most of my research is on belief formation, influence and decision-making under uncertainty. In general I am interested in seeking to understand why people make decisions that appear to be based on biased or uninformed beliefs.  I use both standard (rational belief updating) and behavioral approaches, and both formal game theoretic models and empirical analysis.  The applications I have focused on are news media and sports.
