Welcome to my website! After earning my Ph.D. in economics from Stanford University, I joined Harvard Business School as an assistant professor in the Negotiation, Organizations & Markets Unit.
Much of my research examines how individuals interpret, and often distort, information in order to justify their own beliefs and behavior. I document how individuals distort information to develop excuses not to give; how individuals update in response to even irrelevant signals to think of themselves as more intelligent; how individuals narrowly bracket equity concerns; how individuals pursue more paternalistic behavior towards women even it is not helpful; and how individuals discriminate against others according to their group associations.

Much of my non-academic work relates to a startup that I co-founded to help dogs in need of homes find homes as well as advisory roles in non-profit organizations. Learn more about this work here.
