PhD Candidate in Economics

Princeton University


I am a PhD candidate in Economics at Princeton University (anticipated graduation in Spring 2024) with research interests in the industrial organization of health markets and econometrics. My advisor is Kate Ho, and my other references are Alessandro Lizzeri and Ulrich Müller.

In 2024-25, I will be a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania. I will join the Department of Economics at Cornell University as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2025.

Before starting graduate school, I received a BS in mathematics with a specialization in economics from the University of Chicago in 2017 and was a Stanford Law Empirical Research Fellow under John Donohue III between 2017 and 2018.
