I am an economic sociologist in the department of sociology & anthropology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
My research investigates sociological factors that influence financial decision-making and that structure economic behavior — which have previously gone unnoticed. This work reveals novel effects that social relations, culture, institutions, and technology have on economic action such as investing, borrowing & lending, and financial risk-taking.
My scholarship is both empirical and theoretical, and falls at the intersection of economic sociology, the social studies of finance, and behavioral economics.
I received my Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I also hold an MA in economics and am a CFA (chartered financial analyst) charterholder.
