I am a Ph.D. candidate and Research Assistant in Agricultural Economics Department at Texas A&M University. I am also the Senior Lab Manager at Human Behavior Lab.

My research spans understanding behavioral aspects of economic decision-making, incorporating biometric data into economic models, improving predictions on decision outcomes by utilizing Machine Learning tools and using applied econometric methods to answer empirical questions. Currently, my work scrutinizes behavioral underpinnings of food choices. Understanding of food choices constitutes the main chunk of my doctoral dissertation which was granted with NSF research award.
