I am a Political Science PhD Candidate at Stony Brook University. I am primarily interested in behavioral political economy. I am interested in how social preferences and beliefs play roles in collective actions, redistributive policies, and other political behaviors. I use a variety of methods, including experiments, machine learning, and agent-based modeling. My dissertation focuses on how people make tradeoffs between other people’s personal freedoms and what is best for society overall. I am also the Center for Behavioral Political Economy lab manager at Stony Brook University.
