I'm a PhD Candidate at the Department of Economics at UC Berkeley studying industrial organization and household finance. My research focuses on understanding how people spend their money and it's effects on market outcomes. My current research projects study gender differences in consumption spending as well as disparities in medical billing.

Prior to my graduate studies at Berkeley, I worked as a research assistant at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and completed my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley (Go Bears x2!).
