I am Professor of Economics at Claremont Graduate University. My areas of interest are experimental and behavioral economics. Put broadly, I use laboratory experiments to study decision making in economic environments. I am also interested in  utilizing psychology and neuroscience to better understand decision processes that correlate with economic choice. My work crosses disciplinary boundaries.


“Facts do not come from the armchair, but from careful observation and experimentation.”
H. Simon in A. Rubinstein, 1998.

“The economist may attempt to ignore psychology, but it is a sheer impossibility to ignore human nature, for his science is a science of human behavior.” J.M. Clark, 1918
