I am a PhD candidate in Economics at University of California, Berkeley, advised by David Card and David Romer. My research interests are in Labor Economics, Macroeconomics, and Economic History. In Summer 2016, I was a Dissertation Fellow at Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

Before Berkeley, I studied Economic History at Cambridge supported by the Isaac Newton Trust Grant. I completed my undergraduate studies in Industrial & Labor Relations at Cornell University.
