I am an Assistant Professor at the MIT Sloan Applied Economics Group and a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Prior to joining MIT Sloan, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Microsoft Research. I received my PhD in economics from MIT in 2020.
My research interests are Industrial Organization and Econometrics.
