As a behavioral economist I study how people actually act in the marketplace, as opposed to how they should or would perform if they were completely rational. I study a wide range of daily behaviors such as buying (or not), saving (or not), ordering food in restaurants, pain management, procrastination, dishonesty, and decision making under different emotional states.

Talena Sanders is an interdisciplinary artist, filmmaker, and second year MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts student at Duke. I’m also an artist-in-residence at the Duke Ph.D Lab in Digital Knowledge. I often investigate dress and culture, spiritual practice, and religious communities, and my thesis work is based around Mormonism in America. I am currently editing a feature length experimental documentary 16mm film on mainstream Mormonism, a short film on a Mormon community built on prophecies about a gold mine in Utah, and developing a docu-fiction-autobiographical-epistolary-photography print work on Warren Jeffs and the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Colorado City, AZ.
