I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Management UTSC, with a cross-appointment to the Economic Analysis and Policy area at the Rotman School of Management, both at the University of Toronto. One of my interests concerns designing policies for the exchange of goods about which people have strong ethical intuitions, as is the case, for example, with living organ donation, or when incentive systems place a price on the natural environment. In another line of research, I study what policies help people make good financial decisions. I addresses these questions using a combination of controlled experiments and economic theory. My research has been featured in the popular press, including the Washington Post, the Financial Times, and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
