Welcome! 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 focus of my research studies how to help people make good financial decisions. My other strand of research concerns 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. 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, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, and the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
