I am a PhD candidate at Duke University in the Fuqua School of Business. Before Duke, I studied Economics and Management at Oxford.
Starting July 2022, I will be an Assistant Professor of Decision Sciences at INSEAD.
My research focuses on cognitive and gender biases in organisations and society. Using computational and experimental methods, I look at the structural and cognitive antecedents of biases and their relationship with real-world outcomes.
This research addresses questions such as:
Why do decision biases arise? Are there domain-general strategies to mitigate them?
How does hiring women change stereotypes? How do these stereotypes shape women's experiences in the workplace?
