I am a Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore, where I work in the Behavioral Change program at the Global Asia Institute.

I earned my Ph.D. in May 2019 from the Center for Behavioral Political Economy in the Department of Political Science at Stony Brook University.

My research focuses on how citizens respond to economic crises and climate disasters.

I use methods from experimental economics, computational modeling, and political psychology.

In my dissertation, “Experiments on Economic, Moral, and Political Decisions in Hard Times“, I developed three interactive online games to study how people spend, save, and cope with shared financial risk in the face of economic hardship. I also use methods from moral psychology to study whether a country should repay its international debt even when repaying the debt undermines citizens’ welfare.

Stony Brook News recently featured me in its Student Spotlight section. You can also read about my work in Psychology Today.
