I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton University. I received my PhD from Harvard University in 2020 and my AB from Brown University in 2014.

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.

I am on the Job Market in 2021-22 and will be available for interviews at the ASSA Annual Meetings and the European Job Market for Economists.
