About me

I'm a doctoral student in Behavioral Marketing and Psychology at The Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania. 

My research examines the peculiar ways that concerns about moral right and wrong creep into consumer decision-making.

More formally, I use methods from psychology and economics to examine situations in which people’s choices, perceptions, and preferences deviate from rationality; and I am most interested in contexts where intuitive moral judgments lead us to make consequential mistakes.

Prior to my graduate study, I worked at Bridgewater Associates managing people and culture initiatives. I received my B.A. cum laude with distinction in Cognitive Science from Yale University in 2015.
