I'm a Financial Economists for the federal government. I got my Ph.D. in Economics from the Ohio State University, and my fields of specialization are Empirical IO and Consumer Finance.... but slowing becoming Applied Micro more generally.
My primary research interest is better understanding the dynamic effects that information has on consumer behavior. My current research mainly focuses on online peer-to-peer lending and consumer search. Additionally, I have some work on the determinants of labor effort.
I also have older research with Richard Steckel on the intersection of Economic History and Health. This work has been highlighted by the Washington Post and the Chicago Tribune.
