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 am excited to be presenting my job market paper at the 14th Annual Economics Graduate Student Conference of Washington University in St. Louis on October 26, 2019. Hope to see you there!
