I am a Ph.D. candidate in economics at the Interdisciplinary Center for Economic Science (ICES) and the Economics Department at George Mason University. I was selected by my department to be highlighted in the “meet a student” section of its webpage. I am on the job market from 2017-2018.

In a variety of important economic aspects, our future is increasingly uncertain, and understanding the way people respond to this defines my research interests. Using laboratory and field experiments, I provide empirical evidence informing extant economic theories, and also develop extensions to these theories.

My job market paper examines bargaining strategies under uncertainty about the future available surplus. A second major component of my research examines behavior in social dilemmas where people can collectively insure against the risk of a common future loss.
