Hello!

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at University College London and Affiliate at CESifo. I received my PhD from Harvard University and completed my postdoc at Princeton University.

My research is in behavioral economics, experimental economics, and political economy. I study belief biases and political polarization using experimental methods, with a particular emphasis on motivated reasoning.

See my CV and Google Scholar page for more information.
