My main research interests lie in experimental methodology, managerial economics, and the intersection of gender and competition. Particularly, I have an interest in gender differences which are linked to labor market outcomes such as promotion possibilities and the glass ceiling effect. Tangentially, I am also interested in rent seeking and more general contest type structures. Below is a list of my published manuscripts in these areas.
