I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in Economics at Caltech. Tom Palfrey is my mentor. 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 am on the job market and will be available for interviews at the CEEE in Toronto from December 9-10, 2016, and the ASSA meeting in Chicago from January 6-8, 2017.
