I’m currently an economist at Google.
Previously, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Wesleyan University, where I ran the Digital Experiments Lab. See our lab Github page for research projects and training materials.
In my academic work, I use lab and field experiments to test theories of pro-social behavior and risk preferences.
2021.12.27: Check out my new paper Causal Inference from Hypothetical Evaluations, with Doug Bernheim, Dan Bjorkegren, and Michael Pollmann. For a high-level summary, see this Twitter thread by Dan. (Note: This paper is related to a previous working paper, “Non-Choice Evaluations Predict Behavioral Responses to Changes in Economic Conditions”; it uses data from the same lab experiment, but most of the methodological analysis is new, as is the field application.)
2019.03.15: My paper When Fair Isn’t Fair: Understanding Choice Reversals Involving Social Preferences has been accepted for publication at the Journal of Political Economy. See my blog post about the paper for a short summary.
