About

I am a behavioral scientist who studies both how people actually do make decisions and how they can make better decisions. My work lies in the areas of behavioral decision making, behavioral economics and management, and examines how communication can be structured to promote “good” social ends, such as agreement over conflict, mutually beneficial economic relationships, efficient coordination, and fair and ethical behavior.
