I am an Associate Professor of Behavioral Decision Making at the University of Leeds Business School. I joined the University of Leeds in 2022. Before this, I was a Career Development Fellow in Finance at the University of Oxford's Saïd Business School. I completed my Ph.D. in Economics and Psychology at the University of Warwick in 2019.

The distinctiveness of my research is the use of field data to better understand decision making, providing evidence to inform both theory and policy. Currently, my research emphasizes the use of big data to study saving, borrowing, and spending decisions, as well as investor trading behaviour. Secondary areas of research include the role played by social interactions in explaining improper behaviour (“misconduct”), the study of mathematical models of decision making under risk, and the study of subjective wellbeing and its economic determinants. In the past three years, I have published in Management Science, Nature Human Behaviour, and Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, among others.
