My research interests lie within both traditional and behavioral investments. My behavioral research focuses on causes of financial behavior such as core characteristics of individuals (like personality traits), peripheral physiological processes (such as hormonal activity), characteristics that affect mood (like weather), and attributes related to differences in risk taking (such as health) relate to financial decision making and performance. Additionally, my more traditional research topics focus on asset pricing and market efficiency.
