My research focuses on various aspects of political economy and environmental economics, including the role of trust in cooperative behavior, the adoption of green behavior and technologies, lobbying and media, and the effect of broadband internet on 'fact-resistant' convictions such as climate change denial.
Further areas of interest include behavioral economics and, more generally, applications combining data science/computational social science and pressing policy questions.
