My experimental work has largely fallen into three areas: ambiguity, multi-party bargaining, and labor supply.

Within ambiguity, my work has focused on the opportunity for subjects to hedge ambiguity into risk by combining multiple ambiguous bets to generate a known expected value.

For multi-party bargaining, I've looked at cases of land assembly and delegated negotiations. In both cases I've tested predictions of different cooperative solution concepts, and am interested in how norms about fairness play a role in the outcomes of these negotiations.

I've more recently started looking at factors that impact labor supply and specialization. These factors so far include wage inequality and framing interacted with gender.
