My research is in behavioral and experimental economics. Methodologically, my work relies on a combination of experiments and surveys. In a first line of work, I focus on developing an improved understanding of reasoning and complexity. In a second set of papers, I attempt to understand the implications and origins of variation in morality and economic preferences.
