My research interests are predominantly in the fields of Behavioral Economics and Econometrics. My research to date uses economic experiments to investigate the role of behavioral considerations in games. I complement the traditional experimental approach of analyzing treatment effects with structural econometrics. These techniques aim to uncover the unobservable motivations behind individuals’ decisions that economic theory predicts may be important. My work in econometrics for experiments proposes flexible methods for accounting for unobserved heterogeneity among participants that can be applied to already existing datasets. I have published in The European Economic Review, and presented at the Australia New Zealand Workshop on Experimental Economics, The ExperiMetrix workshop, the Southern Economic Association annual meetings, and the Midwest Economic Association annual meeting.
I completed bachelor’s degrees in Chemical Engineering and Commerce, and a Master of Economics, at the University of Melbourne, and completed a Ph.D. in Economics from Purdue University. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Department of Economics at the University of Toledo.
