I’m a PhD student in Behavioral Science at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I primarily study consumer financial decision making with an emphasis on Prospect Theory and Mental Accounting. I am developing ideas related to the impacts of ownership on expectations, loss aversion and discounting parameter estimation, and reference dependence in field settings. For additional details, see my research page.

Prior to starting my PhD, I worked at RAND in Boston doing health services research. I graduated from Swarthmore College in 2013.
