Ph.D. Yale University

Background

I teach courses in game theory, econometrics, statistics, labor economics, microeconomic theory, and behavioral economics, an interdisciplinary subfield that blends psychological insights with economic models. 

My recent research analyzed the role of inequality in group performance (co-authored with my colleague Fred Smith).  In addition, I have studied the effect of youth demographics on conflict across countries, highlighting the importance of the labor market (joint with Noah Bricker '14). I have been a visiting Fulbright Scholar to Corvinus University Business School in Budapest and Károly Róbert Főiskola, Department of Mathematics, in Gyöngyös, Hungary.

I was a double major in mathematics and economics at William & Mary.
