I am an Economics PhD candidate at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business. I am on the job market during the 2023-24 academic year. I am an applied microeconomist working on topics in behavioral economics, labor economics, and political economy.
In my research, I study how non-monetary incentives and behavioral biases influence key civic institutions including the press, the judiciary, and social media platforms. Methodologically, my work combines causal inference designs with machine learning and natural language processing models. My job market paper, Paying Attention, documents that attention can be used to incentivize effort, and traces out some implications of this fact for the design and regulation of social media platforms.
