Research Interests

I am interested in trust and social decision making, and in particular how these functions break down in the context of psychopathology and schizophrenia. My dissertation focuses on the behavioral economics of persecutory delusions. My research uses a range of methods, from Amazon Mechanical Turk to neuroimaging.
