I am a Research Analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. My research interests include finance, industrial organization, and applied econometrics, with emphases on social connections, large datasets, and computational methods.

I received my BA from Columbia University in 2017 with majors in Math and Economics and a minor in Statistics. Since then, I have been working in the Money and Payment Studies department of the Fed’s Research Group. In my spare time, I have been developing software for economic research, such as pyblp.

In the fall, I will be starting my PhD at Harvard University in Business Economics, a joint degree that combines the Economics Department’s PhD program with the resources and support of the Business School.
