Ph.D. Candidate, Wharton


I am a Ph.D. candidate studying Decision Processes at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. Previously, I received my B.A. summa cum laude in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics from the University of Pennsylvania. 

I am broadly interested in consumer behavior and judgment and decision-making, in particular people's perceptions of risk and uncertainty and their belief distributions around uncertain outcomes: Does constructing a belief distribution of the possible outcomes help calibrate people's confidence in the predictions? How should a food delivery app communicate time estimates to customers when the arrival times are inherently uncertain? Do people evaluate prizes differently if they result from an uncertain raffle than if they were always certain?
