About Me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Virginia. I am on the 2023-24 job market and will be available for interviews.

My primary area of research is theoretical financial economics, where I study the interactions between the different ways people can borrow, and explore the implications of financial innovation on asset pricing. I also have some experience with empirical work in applied microeconomics.
