About me

I am a second-year MRes/PhD student in the Department of Economics at the LSE. Previously, I worked as a predoctoral fellow for Professor James J. Heckman at the Center for the Economics of Human Development (CEHD), University of Chicago. I received my BA in Mathematical Economics at the Colorado College.  My research interests are primarily in the fields of industrial organization and urban economics. I am currently studying the optimal design of fiscal and macroprudential policies in the markets for housing, rentals, and mortgages. More generally, my research explores the impact of innovation and intervention in the housing and credit markets on household relocation decisions, real economic activity, financial stability, and welfare.
