News and updates

Sadly, daylight saving time has ended. The only solace during my long, dark evenings is the New York Times article Austin Frakt wrote about my and Matthew’s sleep paper.

The UCSD Economics Department’s first Applied Economics Alumni Workshop will be Saturday October 19th. I will be presenting Labor Market Adjustment to News.

The inaugural conference for the new Center for Environmental Economics and Policy (CEEP) is on Friday October 18th. Details here.


I am an environmental and labor economist at the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) at Columbia University. My research focuses on how beliefs affect decision making, the role of forecasts and other informational interventions in shaping beliefs, and the ways that taking these factors into account can change our understanding of important issues ranging from routine time use to the damage from climate change. I also have a research agenda trying to convince myself that leisure can improve my labor productivity (see here).
