Research Focus

Within the field of financial economics, most basic theoretical models that describe investment decision making are predicated on two primary assumptions: i) there are no market frictions and ii) all agents are rational. However, when we consider how these models describe and are applied in the real world, we know that these fundamental assumptions do not necessarily hold. The core of my research explores how deviations from these two assumptions affect investment decision making behavior with the goal of shedding light on how to enable finance models to better explain observed behavior.
