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 in the intersection of finance, macroeconomics, and labor, especially the macroeconomic and social effects of financial markets and institutions.

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

I will be available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meeting in San Diego.
