Research Interests

Much of my research is concerned with how bounded rationality influences policy relevant decisions, for example in areas such as gun violence, or racist attitudes. Additionally, I am very interested in  decision-making under risk and behavioral determinants of financial decision making. I furthermore study how incentives change behavior in creative work environments.
