My research focuses on the areas of examining economic and financial decision-making concerning behavioral economics. I am explicitly interested in the application of socio-psychological influences on economic and financial decision-making pertaining to agents. As a result, my research areas are within two distinct categories: 1) economic and financial decision-making influenced by socio-psychological phenomena and, 2) behavioral economics and developing alternative models to decision-making.
