I am a PhD student and job market candidate in the Joint Program in Financial Economics in the Economics Department and Booth School of Business. My research focuses on consumer finance, the industrial organization of financial intermediation, financial regulation, and the role that finance plays in technological growth.
My job market paper, Financing the Gig Economy, shows how finance is critical for the growth and evolution of disruptive technologies like Uber and Lyft. In doing so, I suggest that finance shapes the boundaries of the gig economy by differentially impacting the penetration of these services across the income distribution.
I will be joining the Stanford Graduate School of Business as an assistant professor of finance in July 2019.
