ABOUT ME

I am currently a 5th-year Marketing PhD at MIT Sloan. My main advisors are Prof. Drazen Prelec, Prof. David Rand, and Prof. Renee Gosline. My research aims to advance our understanding of how people update their beliefs and what we may infer from people's belief-updating. My current projects cover topics such as the Wisdom of Crowds, higher-order uncertainty and advice-taking, motivated reasoning and partisan bias, algorithm aversion and acceptance, methods of persuasion and methods of combating misinformation. 

I am affiliated with Human Cooperation Lab, Behavioral Research Lab, Social Analytics Lab, MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy.
