I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in Economics at Caltech. Tom Palfrey is my 
mentor. I earned my PhD in Economics at Cornell University in Aug 2015. My advisers at Cornell were Robert H. Frank and Stephen Coate.

I am an applied microeconomist and I conduct lab and field experiments to understand how individuals' economic decisions are affected by other-regarding preferences such as altruism, trust, fairness concern, reciprocity, retaliation, status seeking, and ostentation. My current research interests can be summarized by three keywords: 'fairness in multilateral bargaining', 'voluntary cooperation', and 'concern for relative rank.' [ Research Statement

I will be joining the Department of Economics at the University of Mannheim as an Assistant Professor this fall.
