My research is in political economy, behavioral economics, experimental economics, and microeconomic theory, and it has been published in leading international journals including the American Economic Review, the Journal of the European Economic Association, Management Science, the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, and the Journal of Politics. I recently received a European Research Council Starting Grant for a five-year project on the “Behavioral Foundations of Populism and Polarization”.
