I am a senior economist in the research department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Prior to joining the Boston Fed, I was an assistant professor at Tel-Aviv University at the Eitan Berglas School of Economics. I received my Ph.D. in economics from Yale University in 2005, studying risk perception, two-system reasoning, and insurance decisions.

My research integrates insights from psychology into economics--both theoretically and experimentally--and the topics I study fit into two broad categories: (1) decision-making under risk, risk perception, and motivated reasoning, and (2) relative thinking in incentives, such as status concerns and relative-pay, applied to pro-social behavior and labor supply.
