I am an Assistant Professor at the UCLA Anderson School of Management and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). I study topics at the intersection of economics and psychology, and my research has explored attribution bias in consumer choice and education, the role of defaults in customer tipping behavior, learning by doing by taxi drivers, inaccurate statistical discrimination, racial disparities in voting wait times, and the effects of early-life experiences on voter participation and partisan identity.

Prior to joining the UCLA faculty, I was an assistant professor at Carnegie Mellon University, a postdoctoral fellow with the Financial Inclusion Program at Yale University/Innovations for Poverty Action, and received my PhD in economics from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business in 2016.
