I am a PhD candidate in Economics at Vanderbilt University. I am on the 2019-20 academic job market, and I will be available for interviews at the ASSA annual meeting in San Diego.
I am mainly interested in looking at how information, and breakdowns of information, can alter political behavior and outcomes. For example, if there were no hidden information or action, would office-motivated politicians necessarily act efficiently? If voters policy preferences depend on the positions of the candidates, will candidates still take a median position?
I will be presenting at the 2019 Young Economists Symposium at Columbia University– hope to see you there!
