I am an associate professor of economics at the University of California, Merced. I am a microeconomist who mainly studies the impact of social and psychological motivations, as well as cognitive phenomena, on economic decisions. My approach is behavioral, reflecting an openness to how insights from psychology can help us understand economic behavior and I use both experimental and theoretical methods, often complementarily. I completed my PhD in Economics in 2008 from UC Berkeley and previously held positions at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Florida State University.
