Office: 2117 Nancy Nicholas Hall
I am currently on the job market and expect my degree during the 2017-2018 academic year.
I am a PhD candidate in Consumer Behavior and Family Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I serve as Lab Manager for the Behavioral Research Insights Through Experiments (BRITE) Lab, an interdisciplinary campus research facility for social sciences.
I use experiments to examine questions in the area of consumer and purveyor decision making, as it relates to food choice, product marketing, and health/nutrition. My work is designed to address real-world problems, with the goal of providing useful information for individuals, farmers/producers, policy makers, and retailers.
