Welcome to my webpage!


I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at Stony Brook University, where I am the Decision Experiments Laboratory Manager at the Center for Behavioral Political Economy. I expect to earn my PhD in May 2019.

In the Fall of 2018, I received the Milton Lodge Award for Graduate Student with Outstanding Research Potential.

I am also an Oskar Morgenstern Fellow at George Mason University‘s Mercatus Center.

My research focuses on how citizens prepare for and respond to economic downturns, climate disasters, and political crises both in the United States and in the European Union.

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 develop three interactive online games to study how people spend, save, and cope with shared financial risk in the face of economic hardship.
