I try to improve our understanding of how the structure of social and economic networks affects human behavior. I study how perceptions of one’s social environment shapes one’s decisions, why the structure of our environment matters, and how it evolves over time. Due to the endogenous nature of social networks, I use economic theory to disentangle competing effects that are usually not separable using observational network data. Whenever possible, I use the laboratory to test network effects in isolation.
