Research Statement

I study decision-making with limited resources — resources like time or data — and develop economic models that take these limitations into account. In recent papers, I have used these models to explain why people use certain kinds of behavioral heuristics and to develop data-driven regulations that can adapt to rapidly-changing environments.
