About Me

My research interest is in how cultural and political contexts shape economic behavior, in particular, how variations in institutions, history, and cultural and social context lead to poverty, inequality, and violence. My research agenda aim to answer the question “why are some societies poor, unequal, and violent?” using an interdisciplinary approach built on my training in economics, econometrics, and formal modeling. My previous works also delve into studies of judicial decision-making and law and economics.
