Motivated Beliefs, Group Decision-making, Information Avoidance



I am a first year PhD Student in behavioral and experimental economics. Last year, I spent one year as a visitor at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). My researches are mainly focused on the impacts of motivated beliefs on decision-making, both in individuals and in groups. Three channels of “motivated” belief distortions specifically interest me: selective memory, denial of information and wishful thinking.
