“Corruption, Policy, Candidate Attributes, and the Voter’s Decision: Evidence from a Conjoint Experiment"

His current work (1) examines the effects of sentencing for drunk driving; (2) probes the effects of pretrial detention and expungement on recidivism and employment; (3) studies the effect of assigning youth to the juvenile versus adult justice system; (4) analyzes the impact of corruption and information on voting behavior; and (5) examines peer effects in judicial decisions.
