About Me
I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Economics department of the New York University in Abu Dhabi. I use a combination of applied microeconomic theory and experiments to study questions in political and labor economics. I am particularly interested in the causes and solutions to tackle economic discrimination. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California, Irvine in May 2022. I was a Fund Intern at the International Monetary Fund in summer 2021.

Areas of Interest: Behavioral and Experimental Economics, Applied Microeconomic theory, Labor Economics, Political Economy
