  • PH 321


Previous to becoming a Ph.D. student at CMU, I worked as George Loewenstein’s research associate. Prior to that, I spent 8 years working in sales and marketing.

When I am not studying or conducting research, I like a good adventure and epinephrine.

I work with George Loewenstein, Russell Golman, and Alex Imas on projects related to information, curiosity, and memory.

I’m interested in how individuals make sense of economic situations and the results of that sense making.
