I recently completed my Ph.D. at MIT Sloan and am currently the Houlden Postdoctoral Fellow at Warwick Business School's Behavioural Science Group.

I study how information (or the lack thereof) affects human behavior. In one line of research I explore instances where the causal links between events seem to be ignored under certain kinds of uncertainty. In my other main line of research I study the cultural transmission of information quantitatively using information-theoretic methods I have developed.

My work makes use of tools from behavioral economics, game theory, information theory, moral psychology, cultural evolution, and the cognitive science of language. I view my work through the lens of evolution—remembering that we are, firstly, human animals.
