My research sits within Applied Microeconomics, often focused on the econometrics of consumer and family choice.

My current research concerns the identification and estimation of consumer preferences when a) not all options are available (consideration set models; inattention); b) individuals have a ‘preference for flexibility’ (menu choice; decision making under ambiguity).
