Life is filled with choices. Spouses. Hairstyles. Careers. TV Shows. Investments. Sports teams. Foods. Health care plans. Cars. Political orientations. Credit cards. Faced with such a myriad of decisions, I have always wondered … how do we make choices?
Currently, I am working as a postdoctoral research scientist at The Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. I am on the job market.
Questions that I am working to answer include:
- Why do people make different choices depending on whether they learn about options from a summary descriptions or their own personal experience?
- Why do seemingly irrelevant features of the decision environment, such as the scale a metric is expressed upon, produce different choices?
- Do people behave more rationally when making choices for the long-run?
- Do socially desirable choices made today licence socially undesirable choices made tomorrow?
- Why are people so determined to keep their options open?
- Are people more likely to make pro-environmental choices when potential collective action is aggregated?
