Research

My research looks at how and why the things we take for granted—our assumptions or seemingly fact-like beliefs about the world—emerge, change, and affect individual- and collective-level decision-making and behaviors. I study these ideas in a variety of contexts, such as central banking communication, initial public offerings, mergers and acquisitions, and inter-firm contracting relationships. Most of my work leverages sophisticated linguistic or text-based methodologies, and employs both archival and experimental research designs.
