My research is focused on the economic causes and consequences of risky behaviors, such as overeating, smoking, drug abuse, speeding, and crime. I am particularly interested in policies that are designed to prevent such behavior. This puts me at the crossroads of health economics, labor economics, the economics of law and crime, and environmental economics. I am primarily an empiricist who uses the quantitative tools of applied microeconometrics and – if possible – large administrative data sets.
