I am currently working with Erte Xiao in order to understand what brings people to volunteer their time rather than their money in charitable giving scenarios. I am also interested in evolutionary games, characterizing economic freedom of choice, and reductionism in social science.


I hold an MSc. in Philosophy of Social Science from The London School of Economics, and a BA from Northwestern University in Mathematical Models in the Social Sciences, Mathematics, and Philosophy.
