Welcome to my homepage. I am an Assistant Professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. I am an applied Micro/Experimental economist. My research interests currently investigate individual behavior in public good and common pool resource experiments. I am particularly interested in how groups form and choose between various institutions (informal or formal) that regulate their behavior. My current research is funded by the U.S. Forest Service and the International Foundation for Research in Experimental Economics.
