Lucas Reddinger is interested in testing behavioral theory in the laboratory and field, as well as its applications in Labor Economics and Finance. His job market paper presents results from an experiment that examines the relationship between certain outcomes and immediate outcomes. He finds that risk significantly moderates present bias, providing foundational evidence for recent work in this area of decision theory. His research agenda includes studying the complexity of risk and individuals' preferences regarding the delay of resolution of risk. He also hopes to conduct applied behavioral research informed by his findings. Lucas is originally from Wyoming and Montana; he naturally enjoys leisure in the wilderness. He obtained a BA in Philosophy, Economics, and Mathematics and an MS in Applied Economics at Montana State University in Bozeman, before pursuing his PhD in Economics at UCSB.
