I am Jason Ralston, an assistant professor of economics at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. My fields of research are in experimental economics, behavioral economics, game theory, and microeconomic theory. My research touches on the criminal justice system, heuristics, beliefs, risk preferences, and social networks.

In my free time I like to play music, study philosophy and mathematics, play card games, and travel. I can talk for far too long about anime.
