I am an associate professor of economics at Lafayette College where I teach introductory economics as well as behavioral and experimental economics related courses. The bulk of my research consists of applying psychological insights of human behavior into economics models (behavioral economics) to better understand the problems of selection and motivation of workers (personnel economics) and test the predictions of those models in a controlled environment (experimental economics). In addition to my primary research on personnel economics, I pursue research in other behavioral/experimental topics, such as how the way consumption alternatives are presented (choice architecture) influence consumers’ decisions.
