I am a 4th year in Vanderbilt’s Econ PhD program. I have completed my fields/prelims/coursework, and I am working on proposing my dissertation early next term. 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 must rely on expert analysis before voting, does the Condorcet Jury Theorem still apply?
I am currently the TA for PhD level Micro Theory I, and over the summer I had the privilege of teaching my own Principles of Macro course.
