PhD in Economics, Stanford University.
Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows.


I work on economic theory and behavioral economics, with a particular interest in market design.  Lately, I've been thinking about how to design economic systems that are simple and transparent, even when they deal with complex underlying constraints.
