I am currently a doctoral candidate in Accounting at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. I will be on the 2019-2020 accounting job market.

My research focuses on understanding how information disclosure, as well as frictions investors face in processing disclosures, affect decision-making and resource allocation. In my dissertation, I assess the strengths and weaknesses of human information processing in lending decisions, using machine learning as a benchmark and diagnostic tool.
