Expertise

Research Interests

I am interested in understanding how boundedly rational agents can navigate a complex world that exceeds their comprehension. In particular, I study how to discover and mitigate potential contracting failures and catastrophic accidents involving complex sociotechnical systems (using a governance lens). I also study how thinking (and theorizing) can be improved.
