Research Supervisor: Eryn Heying



I am a rising junior majoring in Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University. I plan to pursue my PhD in economics. I am particularly interested in behavioral economics, and hope to perform experimental research on topics such as time preference and bounded rationality. I grew up on a horse farm in upstate New York, so when I’m not in the research lab I love being outside, whether that means riding horses, riding bikes, or hiking!
