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

I will be joining University College London in Fall 2022 as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor).

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.
