J. BRAXTON GATELY, PH.D.
Hello, and welcome to my website! I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Economics at Baylor University. I specialize in Behavioral and Experimental Economics. I am particularly interested in social preferences, information acquisition, motivated reasoning, group identity, and group formation.
Interested parties can watch a presentation of my job market paper, "Well, at Least I Tried: Partial Willful Ignorance, Information Acquisition, and Social Preferences," below. Many thanks to the Economic Science Association for coordinating and conducting the ESA Job Talks series this year.
