Research

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.

Below is a list of published manuscripts from my other, ancillary areas of research. These projects range from pedagogical to local engagement projects and are typically completed with coauthors who have a more involved interest in the topics. Some projects also have arisen from engagement projects with local community members and others have arisen from discussions and interactions with researchers outside my main areas of interest.
