Welcome to my website!

I am a PhD candidate in the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics at the University of Chicago.

My research interest is at the intersection of applied economics, finance, and labor, especially the economic and social effects of financial markets and institutions.

My job market paper studies the effects of the interstate banking deregulation on wage inequality and how this within-finance shock transmits into the labor market, both empirically and theoretically.
