I am an Assistant Professor of Marketing at the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley where I teach courses on Decision Making to both MBAs and undergraduate students. In my research, I investigate the psychology of consumer judgment and decision-making, focusing primarily on situations that involve uncertainty.
Prior to joining Haas, I received my PhD in Decision Processes at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and worked as an Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business. My CV is available here.
