My research interests are in theoretical political economy and other areas of applied theory. My main line of research introduces an approach to modeling decision making in informationally rich and complicated environments. The key novelty is to use the Brownian motion (and stochastic processes more generally) to represent the mapping from actions to outcomes. So far I have published six papers using this technology, across a variety of applications (11, 13, 14, 15, 19, 21, and 22 on my C.V), and I’m actively working on several new projects (e.g., the two posted working papers with Niko Matouschek).

We hold a lunch group for people on campus interested in political economy theory. The details and schedule can be found here: Political Economy Theory Lunch
